It was thuggery like this that gave women the vote. Decent men realized that this was wrong, beating and imprisoning women who only wanted to exercise a basic human right. Every time I vote, I remember that when my grandmothers were born, women did not yet have that right. By the time they were adults, they could vote, but their mothers had to wait until they were middle-aged to do so.

"LoL. I take it back. I would *not* hit that."
I'd defend her person.
Then, dust her off.
Sit back to back with her in the clink.
Pay her fine.
Walk her home.
Accept her Saturday tea invite.

While at tea...
Me: *spit-take* "*cough, *cough"
SBA: "Oh, my, Mr. Code!"
Me: "Vote?! Is that what you were doing?!!"
SBA: "Well... Yes."
Me: "[some long-winded, semi-poetic gibberish which can now be summed up as: `That is so hot...`]"
SBA: "I don`t know what to say except... I prefer clams to franks..."
Me: "God-DAMMIT!!!"
Me: "Sorry. It`s just that I had this elaborate fantasy of being with a woman who`s making history."
SBA: "I`m sorry."
Me: "I`m still up for another registration office go."
SBA: "You`re trying to guilt me into this, aren`t you?"
Me: "Yep!.
