I’ve Been Counted!

So a few days ago, I walked out of my apartment and saw that someone had delivered a census form. I was pretty excited about it because I had never filled out a census form before. The last time this country had a census taken, I was 16 years old and living with my parents. It may sound silly, but it almost felt like a personal milestone.

I had heard horrible things about the census forms. I was expecting it to ask me all sorts of nosy questions, but instead it only asked 10 simple questions. I was a bit surprised to see “Negro” as an option for race, however.

Being intrigued by what I saw, I decided to look the issue up online. Apparently the census bureau opted to include “Negro” as an option because 56,000 people wrote it in on the 2000 census forms. Huh, I guess it’s not offensive to some people.

Anyway, I filled out my census form and dutifully mailed it in the next day. For that reason I was a bit surprised to see another census form in my mail today. Apparently there was one hand delivered last week and that was supposed to be just in case I didn’t get one in the mail. But I don’t think I’ll fill out the census form twice. That would probably only mess things up.

By the way, I also received a coupon for a free bag of Sun Chips.

They sent me the coupon because I became a fan of Sun Chips on Facebook.  That’s pretty nifty. If any of you other corporations would like to bribe me into becoming a fan on Facebook, feel free to do so.
