As you can see, I didn’t pull a lot of stops in my outfit. The key focus is the puppy shirt; but I also have a red-and-white-striped skirt, a button-down patterned shirt, leggings, boots, and the hottest accessory of all: the “I Voted” sticker.
But there was another outfit more extreme than mine… this lady’s.
She had a Fallopian tube hat and a uterus cape.
I walked up to her and said, “I see you’re voting for Mittens,” and she laughed.
We had plenty of time to bond, because the line was long:
It only took about 40 minutes this year.
The McCain/Obama election 4 years ago took about an hour and a half.
And it was cold.
And I had to stand next to a white supremacist who was holding a sign that said “Keep The White House White!” He was also sporting a Confederate flag hat and a Nazi armband. The armband was giving me palpitations and I was concerned he was going to look at my facial structure and shoot me. (Honestly. No exaggeration. I’m a very paranoid person. I live in low-level terror the majority of the time.)
Luckily, Captain Whitey was not voting at the same time as me this year. I could vote for the black guy in peace.
I’ve been walking around work and going about my business in this outfit. People keep staring at my chest, and I keep forgetting why.
People also had weird reactions to this outfit (on Halloween):
It’s like they don’t see people in all black wielding wands every day or something.
What a boring life they must lead.
Anyway, regardless of what you’re wearing, remember to vote today!
