Civic duty

I woke up at 11 a.m. today. So much for an early start! I pulled on some clothes, brushed my hair, and walked down to the corner to vote. My vote is like a cry in the wilderness here, but what the heck--gotta do it.

What I love best about voting in this town hall is its echoey acoustic qualities. To find out which ballot to give you, they have to ask if you prefer Republican or Democrat. And I get to answer "DEMOCRAT -CRAT -CRAT -CRAT."

It's a small thing, but it puts a smile on my face.
