Election Day

Several people have asked about my plans for Election Day. Whether it’s because I quickly revert to my cynical view of politics and elections or simply can’t wait to go back to the things I enjoy, my plans are very simple:

Leave work early to vote
Finalize arrangements for and host the volleyball team meal late this afternoon
Attend the District 1AA volleyball championship game
Hopefully celebrate the Riders qualifying for the state volleyball tournament
Go home and watch the Minnesota Wild until the live coverage kicks in by the only election news team I trust — Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

While I may flip over to a local network to see if there’s results during commercial breaks in or at the end of the latter, I’m not going to fixate on the election. It’s over. Time to move on with life.

When you’ve seen beyond yourself
Then you may find
Peace of mind is waiting there
