Conversation of this Afternoon

Matt: Get in the car everyone! We're going to vote.
Gladys: Why are we getting in a boat?
Matt: We're going to vvvote, not get in a boat.
Gladys, deeply disappointed: I'm too old to vote.
Elphine: You're not too old to vote.
Alouicious: I don't know how to vote.
Matt: Don't worry, when the time comes, I'll tell you Exactly How.

Now we're hustling the children into bed so we can glue ourselves to the computer in preparation for a long cozy frustrated evening. Election night is one of my favorite nights of the year, only superseded by, um, well, I can't think of anything. I LOVE Politics. Its so exciting!

This might be my favorite blog post ever. No, really, I'm serious.

Love the post! As for you loving politics...do you remember when you used to wake up at like 5am and then lay with your ear to your clock radio listening to NPR for an hour or 2 before we really had to wake up. Heh. Good times.
