As usual, you won’t see me getting political here, but I do hope that you all get out and vote for your candidates.
This morning I rocked the vote…I rocked it sick, feverish, smelling of Vicks Vapor Rub, and wearing last night’s Breathe Right Strip, but dammit, I voted!
Now that my duty is done, I’m going to stay curled up in a ball next to a humidifier for the rest of the day, and hope that my kids, who are off school for Election Day, don’t go all Lord of the Flies while I’m incapacitated.
I actually haven’t been this sick in almost a year, but the last time I was down and out, I did figure out how to keep my kids happily distracted. Last year first I tried asking, begging, and pleading with my kids to let me lay on the couch and die in peace, but it finally took me losing my temper and yelling out, “What the hell do I have to do to get you kids to be good for one day?!” to get them to at least tell me what I had to do, in fact, to keep them quiet and happy:
At the time I thought I was getting a Get Well Soon card, but this proved to be much more valuable. Today’s menu includes Halloween candy, Netflix and Wii. One day won’t hurt…
So do what you have to do today, and get out there and vote!
