Another opinion about the election October 28, 2008

Me: It’s very important to control your blood pressure.  You could have a stroke or a heart attack if your blood pressure stays high.

Elderly Puerto Rican Man:  Oh no, I don’t want to die.  I want to live to see the election!

Me: You and me both.

Elderly Man: I want to live to see the colored guy win!  You know, that Obama.

Me: Yes, I know.  I’m not allowed to tell you who I’m voting for.

Elderly Man: C’mon, you know you want him to win.  That colored guy.  That’s who I’m voting for!

Me:  Mmmhmm.
