For whom will you vote?

While walking down the street one day, a corrupt senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrived in Heaven and was met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," said the senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

Thought 4 of 4: I tried, but gay is gay

After returning home from my mission, I jumped back into school with determination and focus. Having learned a foreign language on my mission, I now changed my university major to reflect that language and began taking the required classes for it and my mathematics minor.

These language classes I took were filled with mostly-returned missionaries. While there were generally 20-25 Elder returned missionaries, I was always the only Sister returned missionary. Which made going to classes pretty wonderful. I was in the mindset that, as a newly returned missionary, I would find a man, fall in love, and get married. These classes had loads of handsome, funny, charismatic men in them and I thought I would surely find the "love of my life" there.
