I can't believe it's actually election day today. Is it weird I'm excited?
On my mail-in ballot, there are two candidates running for senate in my district. Get this: one person's last name is "Fries", the other candidate's last name is "Bacon". Fries and Bacon...nice.
I told my father this. He laughed and asked me who I voted for. I told him I voted for the candidate whose name I was craving the most: Fries.
Again, he laughed and asked if Fries is a Democrat. I said, "Dad, I don't even know if they're men."
Ah, it feels nice to exercise my civic duty.
You may not find that funny, but we did. And that's why my Dad is awesome. :)
