Prior to the Trump / Biden debates I was still pretty convinced that there were so many idiots in the US that Trump was going to win re-election. Make no mistake, this was NOT what I was hoping would happen. I donated money, I bought Biden posters for my yard, a sticker for my car, beer cozies, t-shirts and even some Biden socks. During all of it, a long text thread between me, mk and ecib emerged. We would watch the Dem primary debates and text back and forth. It was fun.
When Biden got the nod I wasn't yet convinced he could pull it off. But then the first debate with Trump happened and I was becoming more convinced that Biden had a shot. Trump was just so vulgar. In a thread with mk and ecib I suggested that if Biden won we should all get Mohawks. I'm not sure why I did this? It sounds like more of a punishment than a reward. I think I knew that it would be an act of catharsis. Ecib and mk agreed. We were all probably a little inebriated.
After Biden won the election mk was quick to point out the agreement. I suggested we wait till after inauguration. I knew Trump wouldn't give up easily. I knew he would contest it till the end. I couldn't have foreseen the capitol insurrection, but it didn't surprise me.
Yesterday, after watching the inauguration and literally weeping, I went to the barbershop (they only see one client at a time and masks and temperature checks mandatory) and I got my mohawk. Later that evening both mk and ecib got theirs too.
Anyone else care to join us in celebratory Mohawks? If so, post here.
It's a freeing feeling. It really is. I actually love it. I highly recommend getting a mohawk. Do it!
