I am heading away for the weekend to do some debauchery … er … um … good deeds …. so I am anticipating not having a post here for a few days. Not that the world at large will actually notice my absence, but there are one or two people who might notice I am gone like when that annoying fly finally leaves the room.
But before I head out for my adventure, I had to share a personal chuckle for the morning. It seems that a 84-year-old local woman was doing her civic duty by attending the Polling station on Tuesday. Since I am half her age and find it difficult to actually go to the BREAKFAST station without tears of discomfort, I would have to say I admire her energy and determination. That said, she ran into a little snafu when she found that her name was not on the list of registered voters despite a distinct lack of residence change.
It seems she missed this little fact, even with her morning routine of reading the obituaries. Thankfully our efficient government keeps a close eye on things, and they were very glad to inform her of her misunderstanding.
I am not sure if it is a good thing or a bad thing to miss your own death. I guess it could be rather annoying if your are generally a punctual person!
