No waiting . . .

Seeing the long lines for early voting makes me glad that we voted via absentee ballot. The ballots came with an information card that explained how to reach the web site which displays the date your ballot was received. I checked and we all three are in the system to be counted with the rest of the votes.

This makes one inclined to be a little smug about using the absentee method. Smugness is such an ugly quality, isn't it?

Smug is okay. Smug can be good for the ego. It's when it leaks out as an I-Told-You-So that it makes one squint one's eyes and glare back and the Smuggle or what ever the name is....

Voting early is excellent. T. and I will be cancelling out J's and your votes on Saturday. Or maybe just M. and Zeta's. (He-he)

Are you absolutely certain? You can't know for sure, Uncle Sam told me so . . .

No worries. M. and I will be voting soon. Somehow, I enjoy standing in a line early in the morning to cast my vote. The fact I receive a sticker that reads, "I voted today" allows me to feel that voting is being encouraged. Guess thats the Scouting in from years past. Since we live around the corner from our voting facility, it is easy for us to pick the slow periods to vote. Hundreds and hundreds of people have voted in our area which has also increased traffic. Its OK, as long as these people vote, they are welcomed to our area. Would you like a cup of Starbucks with that ballet?
