Before we get to everything, let me point out that the Washington Wizards will win the NBA this year.
Mary Ruth & Daniel went with me to vote. MR watched me vote & noticed that I voted for Jeremy. Our honest to goodness post-vote conversation went like this:
MR: Did you vote for Uncle Jeremy?
Me: Yep. Daddy has voted for Uncle Jeremy in every election since I've known him.
Me: Because Daddy's smart.
Me: Because I think he would do a good job.
MR: Will he win?
MR: How do you know?
Me: Because not everyone is smart enough to vote for him like I did... It probably didn't help that he wasn't actually running for the position.
MR: Why didn't Uncle Jeremy run for office?
Me: He's too honest.
MR: But aren't all the people running for office honest?
Me: You're a sweet girl...
