Believe it or not, I have actually been asked to run for public office. Yes, it's true. And, it's happened on more than one occasion. I am always pleasantly surprised and somewhat flattered when people ask me to consider a run. And, my response is always the same: a sly grin and a polite "thanks, but no thanks".
It's not that I am too selfish to offer my services (well, maybe I am, a little). I give to my community in many, other ways. It's more that I see myself as un-electable. These are the main reasons:
1. I curse so much that I believe that I could make General George S. Patton blush.
2. I have so many skeletons in my closet that I could open my own anatomy lab.
3. I like smoke and lighting - heavy metal thunder - racing with the wind. . .
And, there are MANY more.
No, my friends, I am unfit for public office - and, damned proud of it.
