I feel strangely calm about Election Day—or, I should say, I am concerned about who will win, but compared with some people I know, I am an island of serenity all up in here. Even Mik, who generally does not speak in the mornings, told us, “Um, be sure to remember to vote” before he left for school. (“Um,” in this case, translates to “For the sake of my entire generation.”) Done and done, minor child.
Breathe deeply, everyone. It will be over soon.
