of course, i went to vote this morning. i told the kids on the way to school that today is the presidential election. the conversation went something like this:
zaza: mommy, i think you should vote for george washington
the bean: you can't vote for him bubbi
zaza: why not? he's on money
the bean: because he's dead
zaza: i'd vote for him anyway, or for Jesus
the bean: Jesus isn't running
zaza: then i'd vote for the one who likes Jesus
so apparently a six year old gets it. i was proud :) then when we arrived at the polling place, the princess kept pointing to every man and asking if that was the president. i don't know how many times i explained to her that the president wouldn't be there. eventually she stated that he should be cause he's about to loose his job! that brought some amusement to several other people in line. outside the polling place, there were members of a certain candidate passing out bottled water and cereal bars. can you say desperate? i'm sorry but if you have to bribe people with breakfast to get a vote, it's time to wrap it up. anyway, wherever your political views lean, get out and vote today!
~on a side note, if you take your "i voted" sticker to any starbucks today, you can get a free coffee! sadly, we dont have one in our town. i did consider driving the 25 mins to the nearest just for my free coffee, but then i realized that's a some addictive behavior. but i sure do love some starbucks!
