Last night, we had an election party. It.was.awesome. A lot of C’s friends came and lots of great discussion and heckling took place.
Along with salty finger foods (pretzels, chips, dip), champagne and wine; I also made patriotic cupcakes…
We also played “Guess the Swing State Vote”…
In order to play “Guess the Swing State”, I gave each party attendee an index card and they predicted (on the card) whether the state would go Republican (R) or Democrat (D). Then, I transferred the predictions onto the white board. This way, no one would be influenced by another’s choice. Some of our attendees remarked how they knew they were at a teacher’s house. Weird. 🙂
I still need to tally the votes because I went to sleep last night before the final results were called. The winner gets wine. (I hope I win!)
Weekly workout update – I only ran 5.5 miles yesterday instead of the planned 6. It was getting dark out a lot earlier than I had planned and I wasn’t wearing any reflective gear. Bummer. Now I know better.
Happy hump day!
