In the spirit of election eve…here is Nonna’s take on New Jersey politics this evening:
Nonna: I don get it. One is fat. The other is hagly. And everyone fights like they is stupid. Then they makin me pay. Today I go to the h-eye doctor. They telling me I gonna pay $35 for test. Why they give me test. They don ask. They give me test. Now, I seein on the television all these shitty people. They don have to pay $35 for doctor. They havin doctors in their house. I gonna see em and kick them in the (points to her butt).
Me: Tell me how you really feel.
Nonna: No, you don have no idea. You comin here and you get food and laundry and everything. You no worry about these doctors.
Me: True.So are you gonna vote?
Nonna: (crazy laughter) You thinkin I am gonna vote for fat or hagly? No its not. They gonna vote on me. Maria for president number one. I am better than Obama.
Me: You can’t be president, you weren’t born in this country.
Nonna: I am better than you. I took my citizen esame.
Me: I know you did.
Nonna: I passin the first time. We don know if you pass test the first time (referring to my bar…thanks Non, as if i am not nervous enough…).
