Today was a wonderful day. God, I love my neighborhood so much, in spite of having the shittiest house in it LOL. It’s mixed–with plenty of older people, young people, Black people, white people. And our neighborhood community center–and poll site–is one block from my house, and said center is situated within a neighborhood park. The ladies volunteering today to do elections duty were so nice; I must have been thanked five times, and I wanted to thank them for their service! In and out in five minutes, but not before joking with the ladies about how our ages go up every year on this voter ballot.

“Hey. We are getting better every year,” the volunteer said to me.

Right on.
