Margie: Edna, today is National Candy Day. I do believe we should celebrate so I have an idea.
Deputy Jimmy said he'd come by and take us to vote so we could visit the candy store as soon as we're finished. What do you think?
Edna: Here's what I think: I think I'd rather focus on candy than on politics. We're getting too old and tired to be subjected to all the mud-slinging and nonsense that goes on in elections these days. So yes, we can go vote then spend the rest of the day eating candy. Maybe they should make that a federal mandate: candy for everyone on election day! Then maybe more people would vote.
Margie: Edna, did I just hear you have a good idea? People would love getting candy after they vote.
Speaking of nonsense and mud-slinging, I suppose you have something to say about my red dress. I read that gentlemen love red and a lot of gentlemen will be at the polls.
Edna: Margie, need I remind you that we'll be with Deputy Jimmy? He told you the last time what would happen if he caught you "soliciting" again. Besides, the gentlemen will be too busy voting to give you any notice, so maybe you'd better save that red dress for another day.
Now, tell me what kind of candy you're going to buy. One of the blessings of wearing dentures is that we don't have to worry about cavities any more!
Margie: Looks like I need to solicit a hit man!
I'm buying Reese's Cups, Edna, and some of those Three Mouseketeers. I love those.
Edna: I'll be getting a box of Junior Mints, but I'm saving those to eat when we watch "Supernatural" on Thursday night. For today, I think I want one of those Snickers bars that have almonds in them. Those are mighty tasty! Maybe I'll get a bag of lemon drops, too. Margie, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I'm going to go get a notepad and make a shopping list.
Margie: Me too.
