Today I am grateful for the sock drawer of Himself. I made a commitment to myself to watch both the Republican and Democratic Conventions. It’s important to know what you want and probably more important to know what you don’t want. How can I do that if I am not informed?
But I am totally sick of politics and everything about it. I get so angry hearing lies. I get angry seeing people who I can’t respect for one second claim they are speaking for me. I get angry when people push racism, speak out of both sides of their mouths and promote war. On either side.
It became pretty clear when I started watching the Republican National Convention tonight that I would not be able to do so without throwing something at the TV. We all gotta do what we gotta do and handle it in our own way.
So I had Himself get me his sock drawer. What? Have you got a bottle of booze on your lap? Same thing, less calories. Besides, it’s better than breaking the TV. Oh relax! I let him take the first shot before he went off to watch the Phillies! I’ll let you know if I run out of socks, or he comes to get some for the baseball game.
