The morning after.

October 15, 2008

What will happen on November 5th, 2008?

Your next door neighbor will still be your next door neighbor.

The other parents you see dropping off and picking up their kids will still be in front of you in the carloop.

The car that you always end up behind on your way to work will probably have the opposing party’s bumper sticker on it for a while longer.

The world will keep turning.  The sun will rise and set.  Co-workers, colleagues, friends and frenemies will still be around. 

There was life before the election.  It will resume.  No more e-mails forwarded telling you how horrible one candidate is over the other.  No more commercials.  Just one nation under God with a new leader preparing to take office.  And all the opinions offered up and disagreements that were had regarding the election won’t matter one little bit.

    On the 5th of November, there will be fireworks there will be many bonfires lit and there will be a number of effigies of a guy call Guy burn.

    Well in the UK that will happen, everywhere else it is probably just a ordinary day

    enjoying you blog

    Ya think? This is the first year that I am really scared about what is going to happen in the days/weeks/months following the election. I mean Gore and Kerry would have been bad, but Obama with a strongly held Democratic senate and house is like a major nightmare! I think things are going to be pretty ugly for the “good guys” in this country if that is the scenario that plays out. I’m glad I won’t have to hear about it every day after the 4th, but that is when we probably do need to hear about it to realize all the bad things that are going to be taking place “behind our backs” while we are going on with our lives.
