Dear elected officials and future candidates,

I am a 28-year-old American citizen. I have a four-year degree from a reputable university. I have a job, and I am also a registered voter with the power to provide you with yours.

What I am about to tell you may not be the same feeling your constituents have, but I bet it’s not far off.


I missed an episode of “The Big Bang Theory.” I watched online, but sat through four or five ads when the show got to where they put commercials for people with a free Thursday night. I’ll watch one ad during my online TV, two if I’m feeling jolly, but five is ridiculous. I don’t care to learn how, if I use a certain credit card, I can have a cash back concierge. If I did, I’d watch the show on TV. No, I wouldn’t. I’d DVR it and fast forward the commercials. Next time I’ll remember to erase the DVR.

My 100-word posts are inspired by a WordPress blog called All of 100. The authors of the site, which has been operating since 2009, committed to write 100 words a day – no more, no less. I decided to take up the challenge because I thought it might help me write more concisely. It is more difficult than I thought.
