I hauled myself down the block to the retirement community craft room and voted this morning. I took Eva with me and our ages together (I know she only adds 20 months) didn't even come close to the ages of the other people that were there voting. I guess the younger crowd (under 70) will show up later today. I did my civic duty and in the process had a lovely conversation with one of the poll workers.
Old lady working the poll: My! You've got a nice drivers license picture.
Me: Thank you! I actually wore makeup that day.
OLWTP: You'd be surprised how bad some people look in those whether they have on makeup or not.
OLWTP: I look at those all day and I've seen some doozies.
Me: I bet.
OLWTP: Okay, young lady. You go and do your duty now and vote.
After I voted I took my ballot to the old man working the poll.
Old man working the poll: You sure were quick.
Me: I did my homework.
OMWTP: You young'uns can read those ballots without the magnifiers. I bet that helps.
Me: Yep. Have a great day.
OMWTP: Don't forget your sticker.
Me: I wouldn't dream of it.
OMWTP: And here's one for your cute baby.
Eva: BYE BYE!
There you have it. I voted and got complimented. What a great day. This week isn't sucking and that makes me happy.
