Yesterday on my way home from work I nearly got into a car accident.  When things like this happen, my awesome brain can’t stop playing out the tragedy that didn’t happen, causing my face to contort and my body to twitch as if it’s happening right then and there, over and over again. I’m reading a book about parallel universes, and this has me convinced that in some other world this accident actually happened. I hope the other me (and that other driver) are OK.

And perhaps in that other universe, Trump was re-elected last week.

If you know the Schremmers, you know we three were overly celebratory right around 10:30 last Saturday morning when every major news outlet finally declared Joe Biden and Kamala Harris the next President and Vice-President of the United States of America, and every major Democrat (and more than a few Republicans) began breathing sighs of incredible relief. In fact, we suddenly found ourselves across town dancing to the beat of African drums with our dear friends and once neighbors, champagne in hand and smile on face. Later that afternoon we were at the Buffalo River with more dear friends, hiking and processing the very good news of the day.

To think, though, that some are holding out hope that through some awful and illegal fraud, the Democrats have stolen the Presidential election (but not the Senate and House). Our Facebook and Twitter feeds are parallel universes. I have a hazy memory four years ago of daydreaming about Russian interference in that election, desperately hoping that some incredible evidence would be uncovered, proving that Hilary won after all! Heartbreak is very hard to accept. Believe Me. We Know.

Today I am holding out hope that this country and all its red and blue inhabitants can live side by side in THIS glorious universe where I didn’t get into a car accident yesterday.

I think the best solution is put you in a giant bubble ball that you can roll around in and stay safe.
