Rumspringa! The Amish Flock Capitol Hill.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

It was Amish Day on Capitol Hill!

I wish I knew what they were there for, & I REALLY wish I had better photos. But if you squint & use your imagination, you can make out some Amish dudes in Amish hats wearing Amish suspenders making their way into the Russell Senate Office Building this afternoon, where a few of their comrades were already wandering the halls.



True story: When I was a little girl, my parents took me on a train ride through what we refer to as "Amish country," & the Amish people we passed often waved to train passengers on our way by. As a result, I spent at least a chunk of my childhood longing to be Amish, primarily because I was intrigued by the idea of quilting bees & one-room schoolhouses. OK, & maple sugar candy.

Now that I think of it, today's Amish lobbyists should've brought maple sugar candy with them to give as gifts to the Hill staff. I can think of no better way to convince someone to do what you want than to give them maple sugar candy, which is, I believe, a gift from some unidentified God of Rumspringa above, or something.

Yum.

  1. Amish lobbyists? I had no idea. That is odd. I agree, they should have brought maple sugar candy.

  2. I had no idea you enjoy tree candy as much as I do. I thought I was weird or something.

    Also, on my Bucket List is to spend a summer being Amish. Because of a family trip to the aforementioned nebulous Amish Country. We are still alike. Take solace accordingly.

    This is Sean, btw
