Election Day

Did you vote?

I did. I got the sticker, but it fell off.

We’ve been having ballot discussions for the past two weeks.

I will be glad to have it over. I am disgusted with both major parties. I am disgusted with loud debate between people who are utterly uninterested in understanding new information that might cause them to change their minds.

I said this today:
“I would discuss that with you, but you are apparently uninterested in my viewpoint or in adjusting your own.”

The man sitting between us gave me a startled look, understanding the challenge I had laid out.

The recipient of the challenge didn’t pause. He continued talking as if I had not spoken.

I will be glad when the election is over.
