Today is Election Day across the U.S. for scores of local and statewide political races. I thought it would be a good time to consider last year's Small Thing task for today.
It seems like everyone is FOR change and AGAINST the status-quo.
Put me down for that, too.
In fact, I'd even throw my own hat into the ring if it meant seeing significant changes around here.
For example, I've been stumping for lower saxes and less violins in classical music for a long time. And I'm for greater medi-hair coverage (government funding for salon treatment), less Social Insecurity, and more Equal Pouting Opportunities for the middle class.
I'm proudly casting my vote for a change in attitudes and mindsets, and I'm starting with my own electorate: my household. Do I imagine that I'll be better off four years from now, simply by a shift in my thinking?
You bet your plumber's crack, I do.
Today's Small Thing is to make some small changes in your own precinct. "Change," in this instance meaning, "to replace the old with the new."
You can elect to:
- Change the sheets on a bed
- Change the towels
- Change the batteries in your smoke alarm (which I forgot to do when the time changed)
- Change a light bulb
- Change the oil in your car
- Change your tablecloth
- Change your undies, or simply turn them inside out. Good to go.
OK, that last one was in very poor taste, sorry New Girls. I'll get my spin doctors on it right away.
In exchange for your vote today, I will give you some mighty fine points. And since I'm the President of Company Girl nation, that's a promise I can keep.
POINTS: 10 for each change you make today, limit 10 changes. You can adopt some of my proposals, or you can elect to make your own changes. You decide!
100 possible points today! Let's see Congress top THAT!
