I’m very honored to be nominated for Blarch Badness. I pale in comparison to my fellow contenders who make me ask, “YOUR COLLECTIVE COOLNESS. CAN I HAS IT?” I don’t even feel like the Ron Paul or John Edwards in this bracket. I feel like I’m wearing a bedazzled cat sweater in a room full of um, normal people? For those of you undecided folks or those trolling through here wondering what the hell a “kirida” is (answer: not a food!), here are some facts that separate me from the other candidates:
My name is Mona. I am the only Mona in this bracket.
I am the only one with a son named Nathan.
I am the only one from a small tropical island called Saipan.
I am the only one who is married to someone 27 years her senior.
So as the leader of the Mothers-to-Nathans / Geriatric-Lovers / Former-Saipan-Residents party, I am shamelessly requesting your votes. You can vote once a day until the polls close on Tuesday at 9 PM.
Tell your friends, neighbors and spouses to vote for me! And if you aren’t married, find someone, marry him/her and then spread the good word! Remember, a vote for Kirida is a vote for change, specifically, the 83 cents I have in my hand.
