I voted today!
This morning at 6:55 am to be precise. Dr. P announced last night that he would be slithering out of bed at 5:45 to make it to the polls when they opened.
I am not an early riser, and I figured Lady and I would just stay in bed until 7:30, my usual time, and hit up the polls after work. No worries, extra time to sleep…
