They said an explosive device had been found "quite nearby" and that they expected to take care of it quickly, but if they couldn't the Red Cross would make overnight arrangements for us.
We had dinner guests over, so that obviously did not go according to plan. And...that's were the drama ends, really. We all walked down to the local tacqueria for dinner, and by the time we were finished with that the whole thing was over. I don't know if it was a legit bomb, or if somebody had just put their kid's science fair project on the curb and it looked weird.

Everybody here probably knows how I feel about the election, but I don't plan to write about it now. Once I start, I'm afraid I'll never stop and anything I might have to say might be true, but it sure as hell is neither helpful nor kind, so I'm zipping it.
