I'm Such a Naughty Girl


I had an errand to run after work today and, on my way, I noticed the early voting location near my house. I've never done the early voting thing so, I decided that after I ran my errand I might vote.

After I ran my errand, I thought of another thing I needed to do. Then, after I did that thing, I stopped at Kroger and bought me some sushi. On my way home, I noticed I still had time to vote.

I'm not telling you who I cast my vote for as governor of Texas but I will tell you that it made me feel like such a rebel. I feel kind of like a bad girl, even. A naughty, naughty girl. I feel energized. I feel exhilarated!

If I had a cigarette, I'd smoke it.

I know! I need to find out about absentee voting. I was thinking about that this morning! How strange....

Serena Joy said...

Rebels rule! And don't worry about the cigarette; I'll smoke one for you. It's been that kind of day. LOL.

Jack said...

Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Laurie! She has been voting for a candidate, whom, I have just remembered, is kinky-haired. It's not the first time we've had this problem.

Texas Gal - This isn't absentee exactly where you send in your vote by mail. This is early voting where you can vote at any of the early voting locations regardless of your precinct number. Of course, you'd have a problem with finding a location in Singapore.

Serena Joy - Smoke 'em if you have 'em...just not in a bar in Beaumont.

Jack - That damn curly hair gets me every time.

Peggy said...

Naughty girl? Maybe. Smart girl? Definitely.

Laurie said...

Peggy - That's what I keep telling everybody. :)

From you adorable sister who works for the government in a round about way. What am I going to do with you?...lol

Laurie said...

Baby Sister - Got any smokes?

Baby sis

Sudiegirl said...

so explain to me why you didn't smoke a cig? you are of age, you know?

Laurie said...

Baby Sis - That sounds good, too.

Sudiegirl - Because I don't smoke...except when I'm on fi-yah.

Good for you, have a shot of scotch!

Laurie said...

Mary - I'll have to settle for vodka or tequila. Wait, I think I know where I can find some scotch...definitely bourbon.

Ok, I am just not getting the naughtiness of this.

A full grown woman voting for whom she pleases hardly seems anything but normal.

Perhaps it is a motive related feeling like voting for a candidate to impress someone, voting based solely on looks, or voting against what your social group, family, ect.. might wish you to.

However, none of these things are particularly novel, or naughty. It is right and duty of a citizen to vote. You choose a candidate based on whatever your criteria is.

Laurie said...

Susan - Paragraph 3, Parts 3(a)(b) and (c). In my book of things good girls do or don't do, that's naughty.

Susan, sleepless, in St. Paul said...

what else is in that rule book of yours? ;-)

Maybe I have been a rebel so long that I don't really even notice anymore?

By the way, I have curly hair :-D

Glad you don't smoke too!

Laurie said...

Susan - It's more guidelines than rules and those lines get more and more blurry as time goes by.

(I'd vote for you, too, Curly!)

Get some sleep. :)
