Secret Ballot

Secret Ballot

Election day is a big deal at our house. Ethan and Alex like to go to the polls–to make sure their votes are being cast appropriately. We got to our polling place at 7:30am. Ethan went to the voting booth with Dad, Alex with Mom.

After school, no doubt after tons of political discussion, Alex confronted Ethan in the car:

Alex: Ethan, who did Dad vote for?

Ethan: (silence)

Alex: Come on Ethan, did Dad vote for Obama?

Ethan: I can’t tell you.

Alex: WHAT?! ETHAN IT’S IN THE FAMILY!

Ethan: …Sorry…It’s not my secret to tell.

Both boys stayed up late to watch the election coverage and ran around the house screaming, “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!” when Obama was announced the new President-Elect. Then they promptly passed out on the couch.

It was a good night.
