Sometime Friday afternoon Big Guy casually mentions that they FINALLY had their class elections. Errrrrrcccccckkkkk! (That was supposed to be the sound of car brakes. Ha!)
Me: "What did you say?"
Big Guy: "We had our class elections."
Big Guy: "I didn't win."
Me: "Oh. O.K. Well.... I am glad you decided to run."
I thought that was the end of the conversation, but a few minutes later he walks up.
Big Guy: "Mom, I forgot to tell you who won the election."
Me: "You are right. Who won?"
Big Guy: "Sarah."
Me: "I don't remember her."
Big Guy: (explains to me who she is and then says...) "Yea, it would have been a tie between me and her, but I voted for her instead of voting for myself. I just don't understand why people vote for themselves. That seems a little arrogant to me to vote for yourself. I thought Sarah would do a good job so I voted for her. Some of my friends teased me for not voting for myself, but Mom it just seemed really.... not right. You know?..... I am starving."
Me: I didn't answer because I was so choked up with pride at my son's choice that I couldn't find my voice.
