Looks like my boyfriend and I just got a kid!
Okay, backing up, I'm not pregnant or anything, nor adopting, nor... well, it's nothing like that. The boyfriend and I were accosted on the street by a very charming Irishman, who was canvassing for Children International. I'm underage, and therefore not eligible to sponsor a child, so I was spared the brunt of his attention, and was instead used as a tactic to try and convince Bf. The Irishman at one point asked to trade places, and handed Bf his hat, bag and clipboard, and took me by the arm (can't say I was opposed), and told Bf to try and convince us to spare just a little money for a good cause, and explained how he was also completely broke but his work was just so worth it. He told us how we would get a picture of the child we sponsored, and could write letters (he informed Bf that he should probably get me to write letters, because I was the lady), and switched back and forth between a number of tactics until we pretty much couldn't say no any longer.
Okay, second time in three days I've been convinced to spend money that I shouldn't, but this is for a good cause! And he was very charming! And Irish!
I'll... um... work on that.
