If I were president

Day 11, guys! Today's prompt (anyone else have the hardest time typing prompt? Just me? k.): If I Were President.

As much as I'd like to think I have even a basic knowledge of current events and politics (thanks AP Gov & Pol.. I shouldn't be allowed to even say I took this class in high school) I kind of don't. Don't get me wrong. I feel very strongly about many social issues (equal rights, reproductive rights), education, and such but they start talking about taxes and, like, money in general and you can say goodbye to me because I just don't get it. Wish I did. I should pay more attention because I feel like taxes are going to be relevant to me some day ;) 

So today, instead of getting super serious, because honestly even the idea of having that much pressure and responsibility on my shoulders is causing me anxiety already (no wonder their hair grays so quickly... but anyone find Obama's gray hair sexy? Again, just me? I dig a silver fox), we're gunna be kind of silly. Don't we need a president to be a little silly anyway? 

So, if I were president, here are some of the ridiculous important things I would require:

1. Everyone decorates for the holidays. I don't care what holiday, I don't care if you don't really believe in said holiday, but everyone's house gets decorated. Lights everywhere. 
               -subsection: everyone must have at least one Pinterest board for inspiration and everyone must follow me because I have enough boards for all of us. Help me to help you. 

2. Dogs allowed in stores. I'm not really thinking about the sanitary aspect here I just want dogs all the time.

3. The day Frank Sinatra was born is now a national holiday and it will be celebrated as such: his music plays all day in all public places and everyone eats Italian.

4. Unlimited space on DVRs across the nation.

5. It will no longer cost over ten dollars to see a movie in theatres and bucket size popcorn will be the only size available because ordering a small is just stupid. 

6. I declare that a size 6 isn't a plus size.

7. Dr. Pepper is the national drink.

8. During my four years (because God knows I'm not getting re-elected) hunting is no longer a thing. At all. Shut it down, people. 

9. Women (and men for that matter) who wear gym shoes, when flats are just as comfortable and look ten times better, with classy, chic work attire will be flagged and fined.

Sorry, 80's Miranda!

10. I would ask Ellen Degeneres to run as my VP and Classic Joke Friday would always be a thing and the world would be an all around better place. 

Can't wait to read what you all would do as president! Hopefully more important things than me. Happy Saturday!


  1. I LOVE this list. If everyone decorated for the holidays, were more accepting of dress sizes over size six and dogs were allowed in stores the world would just be a better place.

    1. Katie, yes girl, yes! Totally agree.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love all of these - number 9 is so right! Why do women do that? Couldn't they wear some pumps, which are comfy and look so much better than trainers. Nice list :)

    1. Thank you!! Finally, someone who agrees! I don't get it either. I know women do it for comfort but flats or pumps with a shorter heel can be just as comfortable and look so much better than gym shoes! Ah, makes no sense.

      Thanks for stopping by!
