Is It Propaganda If Chocolate Is Involved?

Our community’s annual amateur photo show started this morning at the local events center. As a sponsor, my organization was invited to set up a table on which we could display the various brochures that we produce each year or, as the Show Chairman likes to call them, my propaganda pieces. Since, I am all about the spreading of propaganda; I was at the event center bright and early to deck my table with brochures galore and enough fall-colored flowers to stock a floral shop. Just in case the sight and smell of the flowers weren't enough to attract people to my table, I strategically placed a few colorfully wrapped chocolate kisses on the table and, by a few; I mean a metric ton, rendering my table the most popular in the room.

As a benefit of being at the show early, I got to view the photos immediately following the judging which is how I know that my pictures won two red ribbons, two white ribbons and a pink ribbon. Of the nine photos I entered, only four failed to at least place which makes me pretty happy.

You know what else makes me happy? Jewelry. So it should come as no surprise that I am quite excited about going to a jewelry party tonight at the home of one of my girlfriends. Who wouldn’t be excited? Jewelry and a party! Pretty baubles, friends and margaritas! It’s the trifecta of happiness for the girlie-girl set of which I am a card-carrying member.

Spell-Check hated that paragraph; Spell-Check is not a member of the girlie-girl set, obviously. Perhaps I shall produce a brochure outlining the merits of joining and mail it to Spell-Check along with a box of chocolates; it isn’t propaganda when chocolate is involved. Which, someone should explain to the political candidates; it would help them immensely when going door to door looking for votes.

  1. I'm a professional jewelry party attendee. What kind of jewelry? I've been to approximately 20 Lia Sophia parties in the last few months. I own more than half the book - I'm thinking I should just sell the damn stuff, so I can get it for free!
