Quoted [with permission of course] from susiebeeca. From a post about her recent voluntary stay in hospital.
So the federal elections were today, and I'm not allowed off the hospital grounds. Supposedly there were polls set up in the hospital, but for some mysterious reason no one---not even the nurses or the switchboard operator---knew when or where they were.
My mom came to pick me up to go to to an outside poll, but my nurse was in a conference and couldn't come out to allow me a freakin' hour pass to go and vote.
Mom looks at me and says without moving her lips "Wanna make a run for it?"
I broke out of the looney bin for exactly one hour to go and exercise my patriotic duty.
