Today is the morning after the election.
I find myself divided between two groups of people; those who are elated and those who are crushed, angry, and taking it out on everyone else who is feeling happy.
And look, I get that. It’s like going to a wedding the day after you get dumped. All you can do is get drunk off wine coolers and make fun of the bridesmaids.
I have been there. I have done that. And I know first hand it’s far too easy to let politics come between friendships.
On days like this, I like to remind all the folks on the other side of the isle that I’ll be mad as a hornet if they quit liking me because I have a different opinion.
Furthermore, I remind them that I like them. I like them a lot.
Maybe even a little too much.
