Lyric Holds Another Election

Lyric was out campaigning again today. I am not real sure when the actual election is, but she has been hitting the trail pretty hard.
She walked up with her clip board and crayon in hand, "Excuse me, I was wondering if you are going to vote for me, Barack Obama, or John McCain."
I asked what she stood for and she looked at me like I had two heads, so I changed the question to, "Why should I vote for you? What are you going to be doing?"

Her answer: Well, 1) There will be no homework on Saturdays. (Funny coming from someone who has never had homework-any day of the week.)

2) The bridge will be fixed. (I'm not sure what bridge she was talking about, but fixed bridges are always a good thing.)

3) It will snow everyday. (Darn, my own child a "real" politician--Making promises she can't keep.)

4) There shall be a skating area downtown. (There shall be... okay?)

I told her I would vote for her because we agree on three out of four issues. I know she can't keep the promise to make it snow everyday. To be honest I really don't want it to snow everyday, so it will be okay with me if she doesn't keep that one. I am sure this is going to be a close race. I will let you know the outcome when it is over.
