Ballot BouncePosted: September 13, 2015
Today’s Daily Prompt:
If you were the new leader of your country and had the chance to transform something that’s currently an annoyance (or worse) into a very fun activity, what would it be? How would you go about the change, and why would you choose that particular thing?
I read Mrs Angloswiss’s take on this before officially deciding to post; I was amused that we had similar ideas.
When I first read the prompt, I thought of voting, because while there are absolutely tons of things that are currently an annoyance or worse, I’m not interested in spending hours or days solving problems and making them fun. So heck, let’s make voting more fun.
I would incorporate slides at the polls. The giant slides, from the state fair; you know, the ones where you get a ratty piece of carpet to slide on. And you could just slide down to the voting booth, place your vote, and be on your merry way, happier for having gotten to slide.
We should have a bounce house or three as well.
And if you don’t want to slide or bounce, you can always vote at the bar with a daiquiri or something.
