SLOGAN

LISA – I’ve come up with my campaign slogan for the 2018 election!

FRIEND – What’s that?

LISA – LISA HOPELESS – ON TIME AND UNDER BUDGET

FRIEND – I know you’re a very creative thinker, Lisa, and there’s no shortage of ideas banging and clanging around in that brain of yours, but I can’t say I think this is one of your best—especially in light of the Johnson Street Bridge fiasco.

LISA – But don’t forget I inherited the bridge problem from Dino.

FRIEND – You can’t blame Dino for the bike lanes, however.

LISA – I suppose not.

FRIEND – So how exactly how can you justify your campaign slogan?

LISA – You’re familiar with the rainbow sidewalk at City Hall?

FRIEND – It’s not like you can avoid it . . .

LISA – Well, guess what? It was built ON TIME AND UNDER BUDGET. I even helped with some of the chalk work.

FRIEND – Speaking of chalk work, how’s this for a campaign slogan?

LISA HOPELESS – CHALK ONE UP TO EXPERIENCE.

LISA – It’s got potential . . .
