This election, I’m voting for taco trucks on every corner. Because America was built by immigrants (well, after they stole the land from the Native Americans). Because everyone deserves the opportunity to see what our nation has to offer. And because why else would Election Day fall on Taco Tuesday? (PS: Hell yeah, there’s hot sauce on those tacos.)
I also had big plans for baking a Trumpkin pie in a springform pan to give it a really high crust—because really, if Trump just built a wall around himself, I’d be happy. But, like most things Trump-related, it didn’t turn out so well. The wall crumbled. The filling darkened. The pie started complaining that this whole thing is rigged against it.
Oh well, even though it doesn’t look the greatest, I’m sure it won’t be nearly as hard to choke down as a Trump presidency. I mean, it’s not going to rob anyone of their basic human rights or anything.
I have so many thoughts and fears (and more fears) in the last few hours before polls open. But at this point, all I can say is:
Vote like your life depended on it. Because for so many people, it does.
