i had this amazing moment in walmart today. yes, walmart. forgive me, i live in a rural area. i no longer buy shoes at prada, i buy shoes at peebles. but as always, i digress. a man, a trump supporter – the give-a-way was a ‘make america great again’ tee-shirt – didn’t have enough money to pay for his groceries & baby supplies. i was behind him on line. he started to remove some food, diapers… i tapped him on the shoulder and said: i got this, i got you covered. both he & the cashier were speechless. he was also embarrassed. i get that. he thanked me in a sorta sheepish way. i winked, and said: really, i got this. and then he said: that’s so kind. i hope some day i can repay you. i said – not at all sheepishly – vote for hillary. she’s also got your back. it was a moment. a weird fucking strange moment. it was also after 5PM. rush hour at walmart. he looked me up & down, and then he looked me in my eyes and asked: you like her? i said, like her? you bet. i’m with her. she’s sassy. like you, he said. yeah, i said. then i said: i don’t know if you have a baby girl or a baby boy, but trust me, as president she will make sure that your child is taken care of, grows up believing – knowing – that anything is possible. he hugged me, and thanked me, and said: i trust you.
i didn’t say fuck.
i am so fucking proud that i didn’t say fuck once.
donald trump will not be president because there is much more good in this world than there is bad.
and love wins.
love will win, people, love will win.
