A special day

Today was a special day for two reasons. First, Kimberly Ann Leizert was born on this day in 1949. Happy 47th, Mom!

The other thing was that I walked over to Westwood Middle School after work. "Is this where I sign up to get extra math help?" I asked.

"No, this is where you vote in the provincial by-election," they said.

"Oh, good," I said. "I need to do that too."

Once I got behind the voter screen, though, I realized that neither of the two leading candidates had made much of an impression on me. In fact, I'd accidentally left each one hanging when he tried to shake my hand outside the subway station when I was going to work last week.

So, in the end, I cast my vote for a candidate who has made a great impression on me, and one I knew I could trust. I voted for my mom. Happy spoiled ballot, Mom!

What a beautiful, caring, socially irresponsible gift.

So is your mom really 57 or was she just born in 1959?

Aren't you supposed to be a copy-editor?

Maybe I should go over to Westwood Middle School and sign up to get extra math help.

(Note to self: No more subtle math-related jokes.)
