Canadian. Can't vote. But when I stopped by Eric's this morning to pick something up, Liam wanted me to take him to school. When I said no, it was Daddy's turn, he wasn't willing to accept that as an answer, and insisted that we go outside and have a "bote" on it (Liam says his v's as b's).

"Okay," he says, "If you bote for mommy, put your finger on your nose."

He does.

Eric says "What about if you vote for daddy, do we put our fingers on our noses now?"

Eric and I put our fingers on our noses.

"Oh, see, Daddy wins."

"No, no," says Liam, "that's not how boting works!" We repeated it a couple times, putting hands in the air this time, and counting them. "2 for daddy, 1 for mommy. See?"

Eventually we compromised on me walking out to Eric's car with the two of them.

At least he didn't challenge the bote in court. Setting up a court before school would take too long if you didn't have enough nostrils.

Right now Diyia (a neighbor's kid) has set up a desk and is having a vote on the best Great Oak chicken: Red or Black. I voted black, but really wanted more information on it's platform.

I wish I had thought to take him with me when I voted, we've done it for other elections, it was just the timing of the day.
