Just Once

Just once, I’d like to hear a story about the president and not react with “Idiot” or “Figures.” 

Just once, I’d like to hear a doctor make my health care decisions without saying, “We’ll have to wait for the insurance company’s approval.” 

Just once, I’d like to watch the news without having to mute the pre-election commercials. 

Just once, I’d like to see a political commercial that doesn’t make me cringe or think, “This is misleading, to say the least.” 

Just once, I’d like to take a walk without foot pain. Hey, I had to put in something realistic. I’m in the middle of laser treatments; I should start feeling relief soon. 

Just once, I’d like to answer the phone without screening out all the political calls and the unavailable ID calls and the unfamiliar numbers and… you get the picture.

Just once, I’d like to stop worrying. Okay? Just stop worrying.
