I got up extra early this morning to vote (I had to go to DC, so early was already non-negotiable). It was FREEZING this morning, and I wasn’t dressed for it (I’m not ready for winter), so I was trying to get inside the high school as quickly as possible. Of course, the volunteers (all wearing coats and scarves) wanted to chat. One guy said he was campaigning for the Republican guy, and promised me a flyer with his name on it when I come back out ’cause he’ll running for something soon. I don’t remember what – I tuned him out when he told me who he was campaigning for. And isn’t he not allowed to campaign for anyone that close to the school? Anyway, I was nice to him because, you know, I’m nice like that, and then another volunteer asked me if I wanted a sample Democratic ballot to take with me. I was really cold and in a hurry, so I said no, thanks, I know who I’m voting for.
I’m afraid I may have misled those nice volunteers into thinking I voted for Republicans. Was nice to the Republican guy – check. Was possibly a little short with the other guy and refused a sample Democratic ballot – check. I hate being misrepresented, even by myself.
I voted for the Democrats, I swear!
Now I have to hunker down and finish my book. It’s very important that I finish it tonight because I have a book to re-read before I can read the one I bought today.
