The first time I met Amber was at a Pizza and Politics that she organized with IWCC’s Gay Straight Alliance. I knew that Amber would be a very interesting person the moment she opened her mouth. “Guys I accept drunk calls and texts,” as she said to a room of colleges students who the most of them were not 21. LOL
Later on Ray invites me to Applebee’s with his friends and Amber. I text amber and ask her to meet me there early. I wanted to talk about me being a radical but wanting to support Obama. I walk in and see her sitting at the bar looking like a big lesbian. LOL From that point on I thought we would become friends. Well of course, she is sitting there downing alcohol. I order a drink also and sit there we talk little about Obama stuff and then Ray arrives so we go off to a bigger table and we all start ordering some food and more drinks and then Amber and Ray pull out their phones and get on their grindr. The damn conversation went on to talking about a gay male sex-finding site. OMG! After we drink some, I have this idea of going to the Max (a gay club in Omaha) and we drink and talk more and meet my friend Ken there and make fun of straight girls dancing!
Well, anyways this is my first impression of Amber my future boss, the Obama office field organizer. LOL Amber was successful in getting the College kids interested in the Obama campaign! LOL I can’t figure why. LOL and some of us become her interns. Still have no idea how that happened. Moral of the story it was tons of fun and Amber was the best even though we drank a little too much! LOL Great times!
So that is how I got started in the Obama camp! Drinking at the gay bar with a lesbian field organizer and discussing grindr! The next morning Amber wanted us to come into do some canvassing or something! LOL
This would not be the first time we all go out and get drinks with Amber!! We also would receive drunk calls and texts. But it was the best!
