Spin Control

An unusual call for lunch

Just off the phone from following:

Cell phone rings. Caller ID blocked.


"Yeah. I thought today was election day.

"Yesterday was election day."

"Yeah, well I wondered. I thought they were jumping the gun in this morning's paper. But maybe with mail in ballots they were counting already."

"No. Yesterday was election day. Election days are always on Tuesday."

"Yeah. For some reason I got it into my  head it was the 18th. Thanks."

Gotta love this job.
