I worked the election polls yesterday. Have you ever done that? I highly recommend the experience as a way to connect with the good and the "not so good" aspects of a community. Mostly, I enjoy being a part of helping people exercise their right to vote and as a bonus I get to see neighbors and friends.
Election day is always a bit hectic and long. The polls open at 7am and close at 7pm which means a 14 hour day for the workers. Most often I come home, have a cup of tea and head directly to bed but last night I was greeted at the door by my brother Scott, who is visiting from California. Scott is an amazing cook. He and Michael were ready for this tired poll worker! They handed me a cocktail and directed me to the dinner table to relax and enjoy the incredible meal they had prepared. What a lovely surprise! I felt totally spoiled and pampered, lucky me!!
