At the start of the day, I sat down to work, hit "Shuffle" on the mp3 player...
And was drenched in a succession of really depressing songs.
What the hell? Where were the uptempo songs? Just sad, slow, acoustic songs today?
By the time Hope Alone came on, I was ready to ditch the whole "Random" mode entirely. After all, it is difficult to explain open weeping at your desk..
I have to have headphones on at work. I must. Why? Well, you know how when you call customer service and the person you end up talking to is a complete ass and they treat you like you are retarded? I sit within earshot of the person who answers those calls. I don't do customer service myself, and, I dont need to call customer service at this particular company, but I must tell you--every time this person answers the phone, I cringe...like they're talking to me, personally.
But then, lunch came. I went outside. It was 70 degrees....gorgeous.
And all around this country today, people are doing it...finally.
No, not doing THAT! I mean voting.
Doesn't it feel good today? Really good? Like you just know something WILD is going to happen? I love that.
(Besides, if I had to see another political ad, I was going to strangle someone.)
So, here's to a Sure-Thing Crazy Tuesday, everybody--it you haven't already, get out and join the fun. Then we'll all sit around our TV's tonight as a nation, watching things unfold, getting ready for a whole new tomorrow. What's not to love about that?
