I must admit something:
I cannot wait for the election to be over.
I want it to be over more than I’d want a yeast infection to be over.
Does that make me a bad American?
Does it mean I’m not a grownup? But at this point are there really people who still haven’t made up their minds?
How can that possibly be, unless they’ve been in suspended animation or in a bomb shelter for a protracted period.
I am not a political zealot in any way, shape or form. I don’t watch Face the Nation or Meet the Press, not that’s there anything wrong with that.
I am not apathetic.
I have my views and actually feel strongly about them should anyone ask. However, I’ve never felt the need to foist them on others who would disagree with me, not that there’s anything wrong with that either.
It’s a free country. People can say what they want. I just don’t have to listen to them unless I want to. Please tell me I’m not the only one sick of all the political jibberjabber.
All I can say is thank God for cable.
Yes I watch TV.
There I admit it. When I’m not busy making stuff for Ecofab I turn on the TV, pet dogs and just zone out for awhile. It’s true probably half of what I watch are documentaries of some kind (did you know that most urban raccoons only have a home range of about 3 blocks? ); but yes I watch other things too.
I don’t sit here expanding my mind by reading the works of Aristotle or Tolstoy. These days I leave that to the younger brains.
I expanded my mind enough plenty in the early 70′s, which may explain a lot why it’s the way it is now come to think of it.
Anyway, I saw this young one on the Today show yesterday. She sums up my feelings about the upcoming election exactly:
I thought she was cute anyway.
So I guess that’s it for now.
We have a big event tomorrow; then Evelyn’s surgery is on Monday; so I’ll be busy for sure.
Don’t forget to vote kiddos. You can’t complain later if you don’t get out and participate in the process.
