As the Kaos family lays in bed recovering from this awful little bug that we’ve caught (by the by Mr. Kaos thinks this came from a specific coworker of his and though he is currently traveling abroad I will track his ass down and punish him for the sickness he has cast upon our family) Mr. Kaos and I are watching yet another in a long line of Democratic debates.
We’ve watched most of the debates.
It’s important to me to see how they behave, to hear what they have to say and to be able to roll my eyes straight into the back of my head and grit my teeth as I hear the occasional idiocy and dirty little vocal jab come about.
But tonight… well tonight it’s just tough. Maybe it’s that Mr. Kaos is stir crazy from being home sick for 3 days (that’s right THREE DAYS home sick two of them entirely flat on his back) (no I didn’t take advantage of him…. how dare you make that implication… I have self control… and besides we aren’t talking about me we’re talking about the debate… get your mind out of the gutter)… what was I saying?
Oh yes… maybe it’s that Mr. Kaos can’t stop commenting about Obama having the same bug we have or mocking HRC or the questioners (that is a very technical term…. I’m sorry if you aren’t familiar with it) or maybe it’s the little girl who is bouncing back and forth between COUGHING and literally whispering “blah blah blah blah blah blah” at the screen, rolling herself into my comforter until it pulls away from me, jetting off to draw a picture and then sighing with the heavy weight of a fever and not feeling well. Or maybe that I have the shortest attention span in the world today… whatever it is the debate has only been going on for 32 minutes at this point and I feel like I’ve been watching it for 6 years.
6 years is alot of my life to waste watching a debate. Especially since I already know who I’m voting for. Who I’m cheering for. Who I’m hoping will lead our country in a better direction.
Or maybe I am just too busy wondering if they’re speaking from the same stage that Austin City Limits is filmed on… cause there was the one Austin City Limits show that just rocked my world… it was Tom Waits… we all know how much Cami and the Kaos family love Tom Waits right?
So instead of trying to say anything witty or insightful about politics or this particular debate (though I loved the way Obama knocked HRC down when the questioner asked him about her plagiarism accusations…) I will leave you with a a musical interlude….
…only it occurs to me that an interlude implies there is something on the other side of that music.. so um.
I will leave you with this.
if my husband doesn’t go back to work soon…
if my daughter doesn’t go back to school soon…
I will become a babbling moron who yells non sequiturs on the street corner at passing nothingness. Wanna watch?
