—–Confession: The election results made me physically and emotionally ill.
I finally had to go to bed, but at 6:00 AM, I ran to the television and saw this:
Trump Wins Presidential Election
in bold, block, bazooka letters.
I walked directly into the bedroom ( calmly) and told Mr. Liverpool, “He won. OMGgggg.”
“Who, Trump?” ( duh, who did you think I was talking about? )
“Yeah, he f*cking won.”
I thought about calling in sick, but didn’t. At school, the adults were somber, but the students’ were loud and uncensored and chatting about what occurred the night before, Mr. Trump, Hillary Clinton, big walls, and war. ( Elementary Students, mind you! )
There were warm hugs, and I believe ( even the Trump supporters ) felt sorry for us.
During lunch, my amazing friend, Ronda, said, “Hey, I have something to make you feel better.”
“Really? Give it to me, baby.”
“Okay, I took this photo on my way home from work last night when I passed the hospital.”
She looked thru her phone and handed me a photo of a man on a bicycle. ( not just any man on a bicycle )
She went on to explain: “I was stopped at a red light and this guy on a bicycle was on the sidewalk next to me. As I drove off, I noticed a bunch of security guards running after him.
I laughed so hard, my dill pickle stuck inside my throat. I may have peed my pants. ( I did. Don’t judge. )
And the thing is, we still can’t figure out if this guy was happy as hell Trump got in to the White House, or just plain crazy.
