Would You Like A Side of Politics with Your Toast?


January 31, 2008

I have something embarrassing to tell you. But because we are all friends, I know that you won’t judge me. As you probably already know, Pat works from a home office. It is upstairs. And for those of you who have a two-story home you’re already aware that it takes a great deal of energy to walk up stairs. You have to pick up your foot extra-high and repeat it at least 14 times, I mean, who has the time for that? So, what I end up doing is ichatting him when I need to ask him something, yes, I ichat my husband when he is just UPSTAIRS! We’re both in front of our computers, I figure, why the heck not? Here is a small excerpt from our morning conversation:

Me: Do you think I can get Gloria Estefan’s “Turn the Beat Around” for my ring tone?

Him: Maybe

Me: I want the part where she says “rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat on the drum….heyeehhyeeayhhea!!”
But only when you call.

Him: No. I refuse.

Me: And then when my mom calls I want “Hips Don’t Lie” by Sharkira

Me: Then when my brother calls I want a song by John Tesh, I don’t care which one.

Him: I’ll see what I can do.

Me: Thanks a bunch. Hey what are you doing right now?

Him: I’m trying to figure out who I should vote for.

Me: Oooh.

Him: My dilemma is: should be voting for who will benefit ME the most, or who will be best for MOST?

Me: I think you have to go with the best person for the job. and who is going to help our country the most. You have to go a step above being selfish.

Him: Yeah, but I find it to be such a selfish process; Who aligns with what I think?
Who will benefit me the most? Those are the questions it seems like everyone is asking.
Not that that isn’t ok, just interesting to consider. I have trouble with the main difference between democrats and republicans; less government vs. more government–Is the government the solution to helping poor people?

Me: I don’t know. I feel that I am ill-equipped for this conversation. But what I do know is I had a slice of sourdough toast for breakfast, and it was good. That, I can talk about.

I like this post. Good questions, Patrick.

I’d also like to request “E-Mail My Heart” by Brittany Spears for my ringtone.
