A mishap occurs at a polling place.



Precinct lady #1: Sir, what is your name?

Fred Burr:  John Wurthington.

Precinct lady #1: (stunned look) What is your address…sir?

Fred Burr: 1435 South Louisville

Precinct lady #1: (faints, falling off her metal folding chair onto the tiled floor)

Precinct Lady #2: Oh dear! Mildred, are you okay?

Precinct Lady #3: (calling 9-1-1) Yes, we have someone who’s unconscious on the floor. Please hurry.

Precinct Lady #4: Sir, what did you say to Mildred?

Fred Burr: I just gave her my name and address.

Precinct Lady #2: She’ll be alright. Help is on the way. What is your name so I can get you a ballot?

Fred Burr: Is she going to be okay? 

Precinct Lady #3: I think so, she’s starting to come to. Mildred dear…

Mildred: I, uh…there he is again! (passes out a second time)

Precinct Lady #3: Can someone get a cold compress? Sir, you’re having some kind of affect on her.

Precinct Lady #2: What is your name?

Fred Burr: John Wurthington

Precinct Lady #2: Oh, that might be it…you have the same name as her late husband.

Precinct Lady #3: What’s your address so I can get your ballot?

Fred Burr: Uh, I…uh…

Precinct Lady #2: We’ve only got one on the rolls, on Louisville Avenue…wait a minute, that’s Mildred’s address.

Fred Burr: (backs away from the table and darts quickly out the side door)

Precinct Lady #2: (passes out and now is sprawled on the floor next to Mildred, who is groggy but coming to)

(paramedics arrive and attend to the two ladies lying on the floor)

Precinct Lady #3: Doris, are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Precinct Lady #4: Supernatural visitation?

Precinct Lady #3: You took the words right out of my mouth.

Ha-ha. I had a look at this story, Mark, because I like humour and the subject of this story is kind of topical just now, with our elections just completed and yours coming to a head.
