Vote, vote baby

November 2, 2010 § 2 Comments

The four of us went to the polls today, and I hoped to incorporate a teeny Civics lesson, if only to offset the Spongebob and Halloween candy. 

Me:  Ok guys, who can tell me why we’re voting today?

Little:  I wanna press the buttons.

Big:  Actually, I think I should press the buttons.  He got to the last time we rode the elevator in 2007.

Little:  I can press Daddy’s buttons, and you can press Mama’s.

(True dat.)

Mister:  I don’t know if they’ll even LET ya’ll press the buttons.  This is a serious place, like church.  You have to be quiet.

Little:  Why?

Mister:  Because people are concentrating on making their choices.  It’s a big deal.  So, who knows who’s running for governor?

Me:  Nikki Haley and Charlie Shaheen.

Mister:  Vincent.

Me:  Vincent who?

Mister:  Vincent Shaheen, not Charlie.

Me:  Oh, I was thinking of Charlie Sheen!  HA!  Get it?  ‘Cause he’s been in the news a lot lately too.

Big:  Is Charlie Sheen our governor?

Mister:  Damn you, Susan B. Anthony.

    Just like going to the polls with Daddy and Granny! Although neither of your children got the opportunity to dump an 80 year old lady out of a wheelchair on the way to the polls. Poppy would be proud of the little pollsters.
