These past few days have us witness another election. Voting for our Barangay officials. Personally, I didn’t participate … why? I didn’t know squat who was running. Who would I vote for???
Unfortunately, for my daughter, this was her first attempt at the voting process. Of course she didn’t know who she would vote for … she just grabbed the first sample ballot given her and voted accordingly … congrats to those that had paid for “machinery” and thus garnered her vote. I hope the exercise doesn’t take the initial excitement she had for the event.
Which brings me to the post … I wish I could wish for rain and actually rain on their parade! For the past few days … from morning ’till night … there has been a barrage of fireworks banging away … all day … all night!!! I can relate to their celebration after … even their call for attention before … but do they have to do it late into the night???
I just can’t stand it … it drives me bonkers!!! To add to the noise … there’s the trash that’s created by the sample ballots dumped on the city streets … you think the winners shall clean it up … are you kidding???
I just wish I could wish for heavy rain … that way … everyone clears the streets and just go home …
