Obama – ‘Tryin’ Small’

One of my fav Liberian phrases is ‘tryin small’. When you ask people how they are doing, that is the stock answer – often coupled with ‘it ain’t easy-o, it ain’t easy’ if you probe a bit further. (I’ve never heard anyone try big…) During election fever here (as everywhere else), the best t-shirt I saw was the image of Obama that was everywhere with a caption underneath – ‘tryin small’. LOVE it. Wish I had a pic – a guy I know Jon designed it but they sold out right away!
