Slice of Life: Election Day Morning 2020
It's 5:15, and I've been up for a while.
Maybe it's the time change.
Maybe I'm distracted and disturbed by the Queen's Gambit.
I haven't been so hooked on a show since Scandal,
and I had MUCH more time to binge when I watched Kerry Washington
take on politicians and corruption.
Speaking of which...
Today's the day I,
in my own small part, in a town in a state
that matters very little to the overall outcome,
get a chance to take on
politicians and corruption.
In a few minutes,
I will sign off from the computer for a while.
I will go wake up my husband,
dry my hair, start the coffee, walk the dog...
And then we will go vote.
Yes, I could have voted by mail,
but I was too worried
about last minute changes
or something making my vote not count.
Irrational, I know.
In a state that is solidly blue,
my vote matters very little on the national level,
Sometimes everyone can be subject
to a little irrationality.
And then, like many...
I will watch.
