My friend Jelissa texted me via Facebook Messenger.

Jelissa: You going flag raising tonight?

Me: Not sure. What’s so exciting about raising a flag? Lol.

Jelissa: Just asking if you going.

Me. Lol. I doubt it.

Jelissa: Nothing exciting about raising a flag.

Me: Lol.

Jelissa: Plus the place wet and dirty.

Me: If they hadn’t raised that flag, we’d all have British and Canadian visas. Hahaha. Now we’re stuck in this rut.

Jelissa. Dying with laughter. Oh Patrick. Very funny.

Me: Ruled by descendants of slavery. Hahaha.

Jelissa: Lmao. Oh boi I’m out of here.

Me: Lol. It’s true though. Hahaha.

Jelissa: Tell them that.

Me: Yes, I’ll write an article about it.

Jelissa: You have to give a speech at the flag raising ceremony. šŸ˜€

Me: Lol. I’ll give that same speech.

Jelissa. Rolling on the floor laughing.

Me: Lol.

Jelissa: Someone not shoot you?

Me. It’s free speech. But then the truth hurts. Lol.

Jelissa: Yes. The truth hurts.
