Dear Jane,

I’m right there with you on voting & being late.

I’m an immigrant — so voting, duh! It’s a privilege I have never taken for granted & hope I never will.

As far as tardiness goes — man! I make one resolution per year. It took me several years, but now I have crossed off flossing daily. Now it’s being late for everything. It’s slow slogging. It’s some kind of a psychological glitch, but I am in therapy, & I shall persevere! It might take years, but I will not give up!! (Next on this list is soda, specifically, diet soda, but one thing at a time.)

It’s a good thing we have a whole day to vote, yeah?! Ha!
