Today Is The Supreme Test

Of minding my own business.

It is federal election day and I will go to our local school to vote. There will be a gauntlet of party urgers who pass put pamphlets through which I will pass. I shall smile as I do, from both ends.

I have practised this with Indian scam callers…wishing them a good day and thanking them for their call. Whether they are pleased or scandalised by this I cannot say – sufficient that it is well-mannered upon my part and not illegal. If they are devoured by wild dogs in the street later in the day…always a possibility in the parts of the planet they inhabit…I need not feel guilty for wishing them a sad fate.

I wonder if there are any wild dogs between here and the polling booth?
