Well, November is upon us, and all you good bloggers know what that means, don’t you?
That’s right, it’s NaBloPoMo.
For all of you uninitiated, we’re not speaking some foreign language. That stands for National Blog Posting Month, and it’s the time of year when we bloggers try to post every day for the whole month of November! I managed it last year, so I thought I’d try it again this year. The difference being that I have TWO blogs this year, so we’ll try and double up! Of course, there are some of you out there who have been celebrating NaBloPoMo EVERY MONTH. Crazies…
Onward and upward, bloggy friends!
Election Day draws near, and apparently, nobody is immune to the hoopla. The election has been a big topic of discussion in SS#1’s class this year, primarily due to the “firsts”. There was Hillary, the first woman with a legitimate shot at the office. Then there was Obama, the first Black Presidential candidate. Then there was Sarah, with a whole string of firsts, and McCain…well, you get the drift.
Anyway, the other day on the way to school, SS#1 commented “So, Hillary can’t vote, right?” Apparently, he felt that not winning your party’s nomination was on par with committing a felony.
I explained that, no, she definitely could vote, and likely would be voting. He asked who I thought she’d vote for, and I told him that it would probably be Obama, since he’s the Democrat.
SS#1 was quiet for a minute, then asked who I was voting for. Not wanting to get into a political discussion with my eight-year-old, I told him that I’d probably vote for Obama or McCain.
More silence, then he said “McCain’s the old guy, right?”
