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 . . .
