So I just returned from my first day outside the Tulane Health Sciences Center, and I have to say, all in all, it was a success! About twelve people came to support throughout the day, and I exhausted all 200 of my flyers. By tomorrow all the workers in the building and their grandmothers should know who I am and what I’m doing out there. By the first week, well…We’ll be embracing and sharing our deepest secrets! We received a few scathing words (my favorite being “Grow up!” — too funny! ), as is to be expected while demonstrating, but we also received encouragement from workers and passersby. More than a few interesting folks, I have to say.
Here’s the dillio: This coming Friday will be a “potluck day” from noon till one out on the sidewalk. Come out to the CBD and eat lunch with me! Bring snacks (vegan, please!), a boom box, your Naughty By Nature and Tribe Called Quest CDs, whatever’s clever! Dazzle me with your culinary delights! So it’s offish: Potluck at noon on Friday at 1430 Tulane Ave. Wooooo!!!!!
Keep those eyes peeled for more “events” going on throughout the month. And remember: any day — and I mean any day — you can come out, for any amount of time between 11am and 3pm (gosh, that’s a long time!), would be very much appreciated. Otherwise I will be a sad and lonely little boy out on the sidewalk all day. You don’t want that, now, do you? Well, do you?!
