The Girl went with me to vote this afternoon. I told her I had to go decide who would run the government. She liked that idea. When the polling worker handed me the two GIANT ballots (both sides!), she gladly told him that I was "going to vote for the govern mints." Mmmmmm...govern mints keep my breath fresh!
For the sixth year in a row, I am dismayed at the fact that our polling place does not give out the lovely "I Voted" stickers. One of the workers had one on, so I remarked how pleased I was we would receive one as well. He looked at me sadly and said he voted at a different polling place, thus the coveted (by me) sticker was not to be. I know I'm not the only dork who likes those stickers. At least 10 blogs I saw today (get off my back, so I was looking at the NaBloPoMo randomizer, kill me already) had pictures of folks proudly wearing their "I Voted" sticker. I am not alone in my dorkiness.
