“How do you know that?” I asked.
“That’s what my Mom says.”
Okay. That was a given, but the rest of the story is even better. This next door neighbor was running for some sort of district attorney position as a Democrat. Two years earlier she had run as a Republican. Same woman that drives a BMW X5 and a BMW 330. I pulled up behind her at a stop light today and I was curious at my anger. Her “Elect MC” bumper sticker was back.
I remember asking her back then, “So how are you running as a democrat now?”
“Whatever it takes,” she said. “I just really want this position.”
“It’s as easy as that?” I asked.
I’m glad she lost. And I am hoping to support her opponent again.
Just a little slice of life from the suburbs.
