Grass Roots

[Although he didn’t win the nomination, I still wear my Jeffrey Payne campaign T-shirt with pride, and I happened to be wearing it this afternoon when I ran into a convenience store to pick up random sundries. The cashier noticed immediately.]

Cashier: “Is that who you’re voting for?”

Me: “I did vote for him, yes.”

Cashier: “Who’s governor now?”

Me: “Greg Abbott.”

Cashier: “Is he not doing a good job?”

Me: “He’s… not a very nice person.”

Cashier: “Huh. Well, let me ask you this — is Jeffrey Payne for the legalization of weed?”

Me: “Uh… you know, I’m not sure…”

Cashier: “Well, you tell him that if he is, I’ll vote for him.”

Me: “I will definitely pass that along.”

I didn’t have the heart to tell her that the gubernatorial primaries were in early March, but the important thing here is that she’s a lot more politically aware than she was. And also that one less Texan is going to vote for Abbothulhu.
