|I was, for the most part, able to keep up with the challenges, although the challenges became challenging when we had our presidential primary in New York State. Working for 16 hours as an election inspector was fun but exhausting. I think that my favorite voter comment was from the lady who slammed her Republican ballot down on the table and announced, “I’m not voting for any of these people! Give me the Democratic ballot.” We couldn’t do it. It’s sort of like a person who buys a vanilla ice cream cone. After a bite or two, the person says, “I don’t like vanilla! Take this back! I want strawberry.” Um. No. That’s not happening. But, nevertheless, it was funny.
This presidential election has been bizarre, to say the least. During the challenge, I was motivated to write political satire, which I actually did three time. I hope that my readers were as amused by the antics of Mighty Mouth (Republican) and Midas Mouth (Democrat) as I was. I’m a little less amused by the real candidates and am looking toward the future with more dread than usual.
