Dare I say it? It’s not like everyone doesn’t already know, afterall. It’s no secret. I really can’t say “you heard it here, first”. But, if I actually say it, maybe it will jinx something and I’ll have to retract my declaration. Should I chance it? Is it too soon to announce a victory on this?
Aahh shoot, here goes! THE FLOOD OF MESSAGES ON MY ANSWERING MACHINE AND LATE NIGHT POLITICAL CALLS ARE OVER!!! Yep, I said it! Tonight I will come home to a quiet answering machine and I won’t be irritated by the phone ringing off the hook all hours of the evening with calls from everyone from Kay Hagan assuring me that she DOES believe in God to someone warning me about the threat of unions in our workplace to Gretchen Wilson urging me to vote for McCain (well, actually, that one was kinda cool – it was the only one I listened to all the way through – I was impressed that Gretchen actually made a “personal” call and plea to little ole me like I was one of her BFFs or something – “Let me get a big ‘hell yeah’ from the redneck girls like me, hell yeah”)!
So, let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief — and then hold our breath until they come and take down all those signs littering our landscapes!!! Well, maybe you’d better not actually hold your breath – that could get a tad unhealthy for you…it might be a while!
