OH my hell. Today is TODAY. Not just a regular old Tuesday when I rummage through my closet thinking of how fat my ass has gotten. Today is a very special episode of Tuesday with a special guest star and perhaps a full hour instead of a half an hour. HOLY MOTHERFUCKER. Stick a giant ass fork in me.
Though back to being totally un-biased for a second. I really am a firm believer in democracy and voting which should be a non-partisan issue. I've been doing lit drops and lawn signs, here, there and everywhere and a few weeks ago I encountered a woman who said that she just wasn't going to vote. My age, too. But yeah, she just shrugged it off as if it were nothing and then went back to her rural, blue collar life. I don't get it. And yet people are worried about ME voting. You know, because I am black (newsflash: I am black) and black people don't ordinarily vote and suddenly the "african american vote" has propelled me into popularity and having strangers remind me to vote. Um...thank you...? I cannot wrap my head around not voting and each time I find someone who doesn't vote it's like "And so you put your pants on both legs at a time? How is it living under that rock?" If people want to live in a democracy and enjoy the fruits of its labor then wouldn't it serve them well to vote? Or is it just me?
Regardless of party affiliation or race or gender (remember when black women were like being courted because they couldn't possibly decide between Obama and Clinton? sense the sarcasm) just vote. It's easy and painless and you even get a sticker. Bonus points if your polling station provides you with fresh baked goods.
Now back to my regularly scheduled heightened sense to freak the fuck out.
