I've always seen these enthusiastic young activists working the streets all over the world. I must admit I've always escaped their tentacles, sometimes rather rudely. So after almost two years of breathing clean Beirut air I decided maybe these kids deserve a couple of minutes of my time. After all Green is good and so is Peace.
So walking by their territory like I do almost daily, and just like clockwork this dude pounced on me. This time I didn't slither away and I think this dude was caught by surprise. Dude must've been shocked someone was eager to talk to him.
Dude ran through his script on how cool the environment is, and kept throwing at me questions that could only be answered with an approving nod.
-Do you breathe air?
-Do you like little birds?
-Do you want your kids to be born with a head?
-Do you hate one or both of our neighboring countries?
Dude is good, I couldn't disagree with anything he said. Dude whisked me away to a green heaven I was ready to marry Dude. Then he asks me for my bank account plus routing number. What the Heck!
Ohhh, I get it now, and all this time I thought Green stood for the environment. Stupid me.
