Chronic Depression Lasts Longer Than A Week: Action Shots from Issue Eighteen

Finally, at long last, largely due to busyness on my part (apologies), we have an eclectic collection of Action Shots from last week’s story by mensah demary, worn about Wooster, OH and Louisville, KY by our fabulous operative Kelsey Kerr. See! these glorious photos, as narrated by the operative herself:

Candy-Colored Misery

Taken in a party store in Wooster. I happened to wander in there after Walmart. Sadly, no one commented on the patch at this location.
I will say that I found the contrast of the party store and the poem quite amusing.

Banks Inspire Depression.

By Chase in Wooster. While I was in line waiting to deposit a check, a woman stopped me, saying she was trying to read my back but that she was having difficulty. I gingerly moved my purse strap out of her way.

We Only Talk to Animals Now

A Petco in Wooster. Oh, the adventures of Petco. Both my puppy and I had a good time there. He got some bitches while getting his nails groomed, so I was told, and I got frisked by an employee’s eyes. She stopped me to tell me how much she enjoyed the piece.

Forever Low Every Day

At the Walmart in Louisville, KY when a woman read the poem as she was strolling her young daughter into the store.

Prep Time

In Louisville before going out on the town on Saturday night.

Pluto Is No Longer A Planet

This group was taken out on the town Saturday night. I went out with my boyfriend, Mac Kelly’s family. His cousin Erin’s also in some of the shots. We went to dinner, then went bar hopping, which included some drinking of Mamajauna and dancing. No comments on the prose piece, but maybe that’s become patrons at the places we attended had a bit distracted minds.

AND YOU CAN'T BRING IT BACK.

 

NO, YOU CAN'T.

These next two were taken at Lynn’s Paradise Cafe in Louisville. It’s a pretty well-known tourist spot, with delicious food. Today was Lima Bean Day, so there were free lima beans for everyone with every meal. In the shot, I’m wearing a Dr. Seuss hat. There are many fun hats in the restaurant’s shop, which people like to put on for photos.

Funny Hats #1 (I Feel Shrimpy Today)

 

Funny Hats #2 (Redux)

In my boyfriend’s father’s condo with our puppy, Charlie, who loves my jacket and is always getting it coated in fur. (Hence, all the fur on my jacket in the shots.)

Woofs

Stay tuned for photos of Casey Hannan’s story later on this week.
