I’d love to hug two of the women at work today, who helped me to cut and sort the tickets for the Winter concerts.
I’m not really paying attention to the elections. I know I should, but I don’t trust anyone who pays someone else to write their speeches. I’m not voting for a spin doctor, I’m supposed to be voting for an actual candidate.
