Monday Sept 3 I canvass with Primo, again

Me: My husband is running for the state house. We would appreciate it if you would consider voting for him.

Older lady: What party is he?

Me: He is running as a Polka Dot.

OL: Oh. We've already made our decision. We usually vote Stripes. [She hands the campaign literature back to me.]

Me: Me, too. But he's my husband. So I'll vote for my husband.

OL: I understand. My, it's hot out there. Would you like a bottle of water?

Me: Yes, I would.

Later.

Me: My husband is running for the state house. We would appreciate it if you would consider voting for him.

Older lady #2: What party is he?

Me: He is running as a Polka Dot.

OL2: I usually vote for the Stripes, but thank you. [She hands the campaign material back to me.]

Me: Yeah, me too. But I'm married to him.

OL2: How does that work?

Me: Well, he's my husband. And I can tell you that he will have to represent both sides if he is elected, because if he doesn't, he will be sleeping in the guest room.

OL2 [Takes campaign literature back]: I'll think about it.

Me: Thank you!

  1. But will you have the moral strength and fortitude to banish Primo's Cute Butt to the spare room?
