The phone rang today, and the familiar sense of dread came upon me. But wait, I thought. It's all good. The election is over. I answered.
"Hello, I'm calling to remind you, you should have voted for Obama yesterday."
"Well... I ... Uh... That was yesterday?"
"Yes, that was yesterday! How could you forget?"
"I just... I..."
"Do you know your precinct number?"
"Yes, your number. It's not rocket science. It's a number!"
"No, I don't, I-"
Okay, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that this is all a lie. I'm sorry that I didn't really answer the phone. I was afraid. I admit it.
I'm sorry if it was you calling.
