I'm rethinking my election temper-tantrum...

Okay, so maybe I was acting a bit rudely and was grumpy and needed to eat at regular intervals and - most certainly - could have used a glass of wine. But...I did not vote early. I found out that it causes a LOT of extra work for the town clerks and besides, I did not want all the apathetic nay-sayers out there to ruin my election day.
So...I'll stand in line, proudly, to cast my ballot and I'll smile and know that this line, this privilege is my birthright.
And besides, it's really fun to see everyone and I really like the feeling of dropping those papers into those old, beaten up wooden boxes and knowing they count.
