Weekly Words Challenge 20!
I was going to post a rant yesterday about how bad snot is for my skin...
But then our Internet went down and saved you.
My little brother called this morning to tell me I was getting old. The little shit. Just wait until he turns twenty-five. I'm going to buy him a walker! This year my birthday is marked with many other events: the Florida elections, our quarter sales meeting, my period. *SIGH* I woke up at 5:30 this morning so I could leave with enough time to vote and still make it to work my usual ten minutes late. I didn't think it would be difficult to accomplish, considering the polling place was only two minutes away from our house. Of course that meant I got lost.
Actually I could SEE the building, I just couldn't get to it. I drove up and down the road for five minutes looking for a place that crossed the ten foot fence dividing us. Finally the old man standing out front took pity on me. "Just hop the fence!" He yelled. Yeah oh-kay buddy. Maybe if I hadn't been wearing five inch heels. "How do I get over there?" I yelled back. He explained that I had to enter through the park on the other side of the main road. Basically, without having to draw you a map, I'm a fucking idiot. There were political signs making an arrow to the entrance.
I left the polling place feeling exuberant. There's something thrilling about voting. Maybe it's because no one will ever really know who I chose. Maybe it's because life so seldom offers us a choice. I recommend everyone doing it. It's sad to me that 90% of the people I know don't vote. They don't care. They're too busy. They're scared. Whatever the reason, it's lame. I promise you, if you do it once you'll be hooked. Even if your candidate doesn't win, at least you'll know that you tried. For four years I've been rubbing it in, "Well I didn't vote for HIM." Voting is power, dude.
