A Return to Normalcy?

In normal times we would likely know by late tonight who won today’s presidential elections. But I can vouch that these are anything but normal times and I’m on tenterhooks as I try to anticipate what life in America will be like after today, especially if that orange aeolist gets re-elected.

Let’s hope that when the dust has settled, some degree of normalcy will have returned to America. Or as close to normalcy as can be achieved after four years of gross abnormalcy.


Written for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (normal), Your Daily Word Prompt (vouch), Ragtag Daily Prompt (tenterhooks), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (anticipate), and Word of the Day (aeolist).

      Yes, and as of 10:20 pm Pacific time, it’s a very ugly truth.

          Biden has a certain look. He also looks a bit like my mom’s dad (Grandpa’s hair was only dark, though, and never thinning).

      It’s now 10:30 pm my time and it doesn’t look good for Biden. 😢

    That the result is even in doubt is frightening. That horror won’t go away for a long time.

    Sadly regardless of the roughly half of america will have voted for him … that’s just shameful

    It doesn’t look good at 9pm, and even if Joe ekes out a win, it’s hugely depressing that 56 fucking million people (as of now) voted for 4 more years of this shitshow 🤮🤮🤮

      No, it looks pretty bleak at 10:45 and now Trump has 62.4 million votes, more than he got in 2016. It also looks like the GOP will hold on to the Senate. FUCK!!!

    I don’t want normalcy. I want Donald Trump prosecuted, for more than one thing. Even if it’s only in civil law areas, rather than criminal. But it could be for criminal acts, too.

    This certainly was (and still is) not a normal election. Good job with the prompts.
