I didn't. I was knocked out with antihistamines, sweating out a fever, when I should have been at the polls. Fortunately, everyone I would have voted for seems to be winning by a comfortable margin. Now, if I still lived in Pulaski County, I could have had Alex drop me by to vote, conveniently, after seeing the doctor today. But now we live in a different county, and there was no way either of us could summon up the strength to drive to yet another town to stand in line at the polls before going home to collapse.
I got a nifty new antihistamine that is working wonders (finally) for my heinous drainage (Is that a great name for a band/blog, or what?), some new drugs for my highly-irritable bowel, and Alex got a great big shot of Rocephin, because he has pneumonia. AGAIN. And yes, he's had that lifetime pneumonia vaccine. We won't be endorsing the manufacturer of that little wonder.
SO: The moral of this little cautionary tale? Participate in your area's EARLY VOTING option. Because you never know what will happen on election day. You could be unconscious, unable to get to the polls to cancel out your husband's single "wrong" vote. Seriously, if a certain race in our county is decided by one vote, someone in this household is in BIG trouble.
