It this the line to buy the talking Elmo???

Why I vote:

1. Fashion- The sticker " I voted" is very fashionable and I coordinate my clothes to match that sticker.

2. So I can complain

3. Cancel out another vote...we all know someone who is voting opposite of us

4. Long lines-it's my only chance to get caught up on my "reading"....too bad there is not wireless internet service..I could blog...darn!

5. I get such a "rush" of energy...casting my vote! This is one thing we all do that no matter who you are...every vote is equal!

6. I want to celebrate July 4th!

7. I like to stand in line pretending I am waiting to buy a Wii or a talking Elmo.

8. To re-live my college days when I just filled in the circle hoping it was the right answer:)!

7. Okay..Okay...it's my right and responsibility! Hope you will join me in the lines!!!

My kids loved the whole process when I took them with me. While I was in the box, my youngest shouted, "Mom, don't forget to vote for McCain!"

Yeppers! My hubby and I went in two weeks ago to early vote. I get so upset that folks here can vote and don't vote. Grrr. Pet peeve of mine! But, I forgot to get my sticker so no freebie coffees today for me. Shoot... ;) Hugs, Les
