here have been a lot of different stories going around lately about the carrot, the egg, and the coffee. Instead of telling a story of questionable origin, I’ll cut to the chase.

The election. You just can’t get away from it these days. 😉 I’m not one to usually go on about politics–political discussions tend to end up in some form of debate and I’m not usually well-versed enough to argue my position.
