More cheekiness

(In which I reluctantly reveal my voting history.)

We were sitting in the chiropractor's waiting room the other day, and Caroline spied a People magazine with Sarah Palin's picture in the corner. That little glint stole into her eye.
"Who's that?" she asked, rather coyly.
"Oh, that's Sarah Palin," I answered, expecting it to mean nothing to her.
Momentary pause.
"Who did she vote for?"
Double take.
"I would say she voted for John McCain. And herself."
"And YOU voted for JOHN MCCAIN!" Bitter -- and elevated -- tone of accusation. The entire office is now alerted to Mom's total uncoolness.
Muttering, smugly: "Lizey and I voted for Barack Obama."
