... when they hear the election results on the clock radio. (Yes, we still have one of those.)
But there were the results and there I was.
It took a while to regain perspective and recall that I am, in fact, a monarchist. As one of that family, my duty is to convey His Majesty's wishes as best I can in this minor principality to which I have been assigned.
I do my best. And sometimes it can get me down. But I answer to a higher power, a monarch who has all our best interests deep in his sacred heart.
For now, that is enough.
And I curse no more.
