Sign count: Three weeks until the election.

On Saturday I went running, and I don’t know exactly how far I went, because I ran all through the interior of our neighborhood looking for signs to report to you all. There are definitely more signs than there were a couple of weeks ago. And we all know how I feel about that.

Have I mentioned to you how I keep the sign count when I am running? I don’t think I have, because I didn’t tell Mike until Saturday afternoon. I keep the Obama count on my left hand and the McCain count on my right hand. Also, I find myself hilarious and laugh at all my own jokes. Let me pause right now to laugh at that. Okay, I’m back. I didn’t plan on doing it that way, but the first time I started counting signs, my first sighting was McCain, and I’m right handed. And then I realized how appropriate it was, so I have kept it that way ever since.

Saturday’s run yielded the following results:

Obama signs: 9
McCain signs: 7

Interesting to note: There was one house that had both an Obama sign and a McCain sign. Which is awesome. I really liked that house.

Now, I should say that when I was doing some walking, there was a lady who came out of the park and ended up walking close to me. We made a little conversation, and I told her that I was counting signs. She asked me what the tally for the neighborhood was, and I told her that at that point it was 3-2 in favor of Obama. When we got to her house, she said goodbye, and as she was heading up the driveway she said, “You can count this house for Obama.” But she didn’t have a sign, so it’s not included in the official tally. The unofficial tally would then be:

Obama signs: 9
Obama supporters without signs: 1
McCain signs: 7

(Of course this ruins my whole theory that people without signs are undecided voters. WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO? PUT UP SIGNS, PEOPLE! I NEED SIGNS TO COUNT! And if you’re going to tell a complete stranger who you’re voting for, you might as well put up a sign, I think.)

(Not that I have a sign. I just want other people to have signs.)

Anyway, on Saturday there were 16 signs! I can’t wait to see how many there are in the next few weeks!
