Just before we fell asleep, the following conversation transpired:
Me: You going to stay up for the election results?
John: When do they start?
Me: 10 EST, so 11:30 here.
John: Nope. Me staying up won’t changed anything, anyway.
Me: True, and the full results will be there in the morning.
John: Yeah, it’ll be like Christmas, except that all the gifts will have come from that kooky old aunt that you only see once a year and who always gives you what she thinks you ought to want.
Me: That more or less sums up this election….
And you know what? He was right. Four years with Harper….. oy.
