When you have literally so much, perhaps too much, to say, it’s probably best to just dump photos and maybe some words too…but not too many.
You are working the night of that first Presidential Debate you literally find yourself praying that it won’t be on the TV in the break room because you literally can not drink when you are at work and honest to goodness it just might be the only way one can get through this scary clusterfuck you imagine. But just in case, you bring an appropriate substitute because Skittles are indeed a delicious candy. Every one else thought so too as we discovered that they do pair well with the Food Network.
Better to watch it the next day with your son; who you discover has very strong, thoughtful opinions on this election and who he would vote for. That would be the moment when you suddenly realize that he will be voting IN FOUR YEARS!!!! So I will throw it out there and ask everyone to vote, vote carefully. Don’t fuck this up so that in four years there won’t be an America for him to live in and vote.
