Day 2863: Fingers Crossed

“Fingers Crossed” is something people keep saying and doing about tomorrow’s USA President Election Day. Why are people so nervous, superstitious, and cross? We have PTSD (Polls That Sucked Disastrously) (Polls That Skewed Democrat) (President Trump Stress Disorder) from four years ago.

I’m uncrossing my fingers, for now, so I can create this post with these photos:

Fingers crossed that people didn’t lie on the polls, because I am miserable from all the lying and dying of the last four years.

Here’s “Fingers Crossed” by Billie Eilish.

Fingers crossed I’ll be able to get some sleep this week.

Uncrossing my fingers again to thank all who help me create this blog every damn day with my fingers, including YOU!

  1. It is appalling that fingers have to be crossed in the first place

  2. Yes, Ann, the electoral college means that the majority vote-getter could be sitting in the White House. Oy.

  3. My ptsd is ‘pick the sane democrat.’

  4. I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you, my friend! ♡〜ლ(๑癶ᴗ癶๑)ლ〜♡

  5. Fingers, toes, arms, legs, all crossed. I fell over!

  6. I wonder if these candidates have their fingers double-crossed behind their backs, and that negates the fingers crossed thing, and they are all a big bunch of liars? Hopefully not. I don’t trust any of them Ann – I wish you would run for President! And keep a herd of fluffy Alpacas on the front lawn of the White House. Therapy Alpacas. Have a good day – hoping this all ends soon, and we can press on!

    People are nervous because they know what Trump is capable of doing. They no longer want a hateful and insane president I hope Biden wins big so it will be obvious enough that he won to Trump’s ignorant base, and they don’t have to resort to the Supreme Court. Although, I would like to believe that the judges are a lot more sage and objective than he’s expecting them to be. What kind of president acts like a bully towards his opponent with voter suppression? I know this election will be seen live all over the world. I’m getting happy and nervous at the same time. Have a nice day, Ann

  8. Because I’m trying not to make myself miserable I’m tempted to pick up Dan Greenburg’s books, but I’m also, because of the strange way my mind works, reminded of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s father has a cross carved in the bottom of his shoe to ward off the Devil. It doesn’t help him, of course, which I think is Twain’s not so subtle way of saying that the best way to ward off evil is to be a good person and stick together as we drift along on the river of life.
    Well, that’s what I think anyway. What the hell is wrong with me?

  10. I, too, have everything crossed, Ann. Praying that it’s a rout and there’s nothing Trump can do but except that he is done.

  11. Fingers crossed that Harley cat elects a kitty cat in office

  12. It’s election day as I write this, Ann. I can barely breathe! I have everything crossed that is flexible enough to do so!
