Unlike poll workers, I was terribly busy yesterday.
I’d dropped by the school/polling place to chat with Smartypants’ new teacher. I had questions about how to be a cool 3rd grade mom, such as: Am I supposed to accompany him to class on the first day? Do other parents do this? Should I just dump him out front and not call him sweetiepie in front of his manly 8-year old friends? I need to know these things so I don’t wreck his elementary school rep, you know?
As we were finishing up, a little ol’ lady exited the building talking on her cell phone. “It kept telling me I forgot to mark somebody. So, I went back and marked it. Yeah, I’ll bet people probably did. . Lord, you know he’s sure ta get the big head now. He’ll get the shock of his life on down the road.”
The lil’ old lady was the the mother of one of Hawkins County more influential Republicans.
The candidate at-risk for hazardous head-growth was Mike Faulk.
