That's how the political game is played in my family

In my family there are three registered voters - myself, my wife and my daughter.

I'm an early riser.

My wife is not.

I got up this morning very early and was on the sidewalk going to my polling place at 5:30 a.m. I was excited to be heading to the voting booth.

My wife says she got up five minutes after I left. She said she planned to go with me.

She only wanted to go to cancel out my vote. She knew it. I knew it.

My wife and I subscribe to the beliefs of different political parties.

So, she claims I left early to discourage her from voting.

That's the farthest thing from the truth.

I was trying to be a good husband and let her get a little more sleep, honest.

Well, the wife was not happy with me. And, she vowed she'd go to the polls later today.

Well, I hung up the phone just a few moments ago. It was my daughter calling to ask who I voted for.

She called her mother to ask her. Her mother told her I voted for the same candidate she plans to vote for. My daughter being the savvy little thing she is doubted her mother and called her on it.

"Well, your father is just a  a #(%&%3(," my wife reportedly told her.

So, I'm guessing right now I'm going to have to work until, oh, about 7:05 p.m. tonight.

That's just how the political game is played in my family.
