Today is voting day here in Florida. I just never made it to the early voting booths, which I had planned. So, the Boy and I went today.
I decided not to talk politics at all on the blog because, well, I'm not up for discussing it. I believe everyone should vote, and that is all I will say.
I am going to share the "excitement" that went on at my local voting place. While the boy and I were making our choice for our parties presidential candidate, the woman next to me threw up her arms and literally screamed "NOOOOOOOO! I am not a DAMN DEMOCRAT!" Much to the dismay of the little old ladies who were volunteering their time. I glance at her briefly, then decide she will be OK.
Not one minute later, she is still yelling obscenities. Only, she is doing this from the dirty floor. I guess when she registered to vote somehow she became a democrat....but she's republican. The old ladies are completely panicked. I'm trying to explain to the Boy that this woman won't hurt anyone, she's just a bit angry at the moment.
I smiled down at her and told her I thought it was something they could fix. She stared at me with such venom that I had to look away. Then she proceeded to say "You look like one of those DAMN democrats that I am trying to prevent from getting into office."
Pressing the "VOTE" button at that particular moment seemed to be the best solution. We did get our stickers, and I did explain to the Boy that she'd be just fine. Unless of course, the election goes to the "DAMN DEMOCRATS".
