so today i went out to vote at the polling place right behind myhiuse i get there and im greatted by a very freindly dude whos like i love your dreadlocks how long have you been growing them etc etc and he then hands me some dem pamphlets and goes on talking to me bout dreads asks where i lived since hes lived here all his life but never saw me around town etc
then another dude i hadnt even noticed steps up hand extended and hands me some repub pamphlets and says and heres the repub side if you care theres a trash can right here when you come out if you dont want to keep them i let him hand it to me then handed it right back saying you can toss it now i wont need it that long and just like that he faded back out into the shadows defeated almost like he was never really there
after voting again on the way out had a rel nice but short conversation with the friendly ..and hopeful guy ..and the other i can only assume was still there but didnt say a word or even make an impression as being a living breathing thing...
it was like he saw i had dreads so wasnt a mindless robot zombie whod be easiy convinced tio pull the red lever withoit thought so figured why bother trying
anyway just thought id share this odd lil experience
i would imagine it would have been similar had i been black hispanic female gay or showed up wearing anything but a suite and tie..lol
anyone else have simular experieces at the polls today?
