“We can learn who won the race for governor,” Beth said. “Was it the clown? Or was it the nutjob?”
“And did that one jackass get elected to Congress?”
“Don’t forget that bozo running for the state legislature!”
They sat, staring at the dark laptop.
“I’m not in a rush to learn what happened,” Jake said. “Just like I’m not in a rush to see a two hundred car pileup on the freeway!”
“I’m not, either.”
Jake shut the laptop. They headed over to the couch to watch a DVD. The cable TV was disconnected until they could face learning what happened with the election of 2022.
“We’ll be sure and check the results tomorrow!” they both said. Like they had said every night since the election more than a week ago.
