last night at eight-fifteen, i was in my pajamas, in bed, and just rolling over to turn out the light.
this is not unusual. i am often in bed before eight.
and then the phone rang.
now, most people who know me know better than to call me after six in the afternoon, because i get cranky.
if i have to answer the phone after eight, i am downright HOSTILE.
so i picked it up and i said "GOOD GOD, WHAT??"
and the voice on the other end said "hello, is (my name) available to come to the phone?"
"WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?"
"my name is (nondescript girl's name from the 80's) and i'm with the vermont democratic party"
i interrupted her to go on a tirade about how their election day prospects tuesday won't brighten by calling likely democratic voters at home at bedtime and really pissing them off, but she hung up on me about two sentences in.
since it's going to be a tight election, i imagine i'll be getting more calls.
this might could be fun.
