Well, it’s official. I’m probably capable of doing bodily harm to another human being. I found a few I wanted to harm yesterday. A couple of college aged guys, dressed for “breakfast club,” and apparently drunk, came walking through my yard and tore up my Obama signs. Something just snapped in me when I looked out the window and saw this. I went running outside screaming at them. They had gotten about a block down the road, and just turned around and laughed as I yelled,”Get back here right now!!! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?” And then the insult that I’m sure must be keeping them up at night–“YOU ARE SO RUDE…..AND INCIVIL!!!!” Why couldn’t I have thought of a better insult than that? Wouldn’t this have been an appropriate time to use the F word? I started running after them and then decided to call the police instead (I’m actually not sure it’s a a good idea to chase 4 drunk guys.) The police asked me to describe them and I said something like, “They looked like stupid drunk white guys.” He must have rolled his eyes. But I felt a little better.
And as long as I am ranting, I am SO irritated at Sarah Palin and her latest ridiculous accusations. If she gets elected I think I may very well have to leave the country–so I’ll get a few more Obama signs and hope that America wises up.
