I was practically giddy as I strolled in to work this morning in my new stilettos and bright red overcoat.
I swear I caught a whiff of politics in the parking lot, sent with the western winds, along with the pungent odor of hog manure and rotting corn husks.

I don't know who will become President in November. In fact, I can't even say whom I'm backing yet.
One thing I do know - I'm looking forward to the sweet scent of change.
