Consider The Sauce is unusually late in getting moving this Sunday – time to go!
Besides, the great and extensive work some of my #letsbuythedog colleagues and friends are doing is making me feel like a bit of a malingerer.
First stop is Officeworks to get some flyers run off.
They’re pricier than I expect so cut back on the number I hoped to buy.
First order of business is to get my wheels suitably adorned – then it’s off to Footscray.
The only firm idea I have is to tape flyers to the lamp posts in the neighbourhood surrounding the Dancing Dog building itself.
But first – of course – lunch: pretty good Somalian meat ‘n’ rice from Jazeera Cafe in Paisley Street.
Back at the Dancing Dog Cafe itself, things take a heartening turn that seems emblematic of so much that is happening with this campaign in terms of support, friendship and community bonhomie.
Jo, one of two Dancing Dog staff members on hand, makes me a brilliant cafe latte.
She grabs a handful of flyers to put in the nearby university and at Footscray City Primary, where her kids go to school.
Then two of my #letsbuythedog compatriots – Viki and Chela – arrive.
Viki, too, grabs a bunch of flyers.
They’re here for the regular Sunday Westword poetry bash – so I leave a bunch of flyers for the gathered poets, too!
It’s clear my supply of flyers will be gone in the next day easily just through the normal course of living and working in the inner west.
How cool is that?
