My blog for today is ruined. And it’s your fault.
I was more excited than all the comparisons I'm too distraught to think of to read today’s blogs. I fully anticipated half the blogs to contain political discourses, I mean rants disguised as brilliant viewpoints, about witches, warlocks, tea drinkers, and puppy mill evil doers. (If you’re confused on that last one, move to Missouri, where you’ll be more confused.)
I would’ve bet my Ross Perot pin that twenty percent of today’s blogs would be about voting—how it’s my patriotic duty to earn my “I voted sticker” and my obligation to wear it until it falls off through its own volition.
But, the majority of today’s blogs weren't about politics. What a blow. Nor did I find the email I expected from Red Room. I was positive there’d be a contest this week. I would’ve bet my Live Free or Die tee-shirt the subject would be "Blog about the first time you voted.”
No contest? That was a crushing blow.
There went my blog topic for today—“Be quiet” or “Enough already.” I was going to suggest a new game for Red Room based on a game we play in our family. (Of course.) It’s easy and sometimes works with small children in a car. It’s called the Quiet Game. The winner is the person who can be quiet the longest. (Really?) Nobody can beat my husband at the Quiet Game and he isn’t even playing.
But, I can’t blog about telling you to being quiet if you’re already quiet. Can't play the Political Quiet Game, either. (It would not be censorship because it's just a game.)
Actually, it’s too quiet. I bet all my Susan B. Anthony dollars it won't be once the results are in.
And I'll have the perfect blog…
