QG's Traveling Lunch Wagon

For the first time in several election cycles, I'm not serving as an election official in my precinct.

The turnout is likely to be very heavy (based on the fact that we've had more than 40% of all registered voters in the county vote early). That means that the officials will be sitting for hours and hours at a time. In my case, that means bad bad news for my gimpy knee.

So I've volunteered to serve as the lunch wagon for the election workers. I'll bring lunch to them -- just after the noon rush because I know from experience that you can't stop to eat from about 11:30 to 1 pm.

In some ways I'm sad not to be working a presidential election. My knee, however, is very happy to be fetching lunch instead.
