Did you stay up to watch the results of the presidential election?

“To celebrate the 2012 election, I invited a few friends over to share in the stress as the election dwindled to a close. We watched intensely until CNN officially predicted Barack Obama’s re-election. After the announcement, we shared hugs and thoughtful quips until the last votes came in. I had to stay away from Twitter and other forms of social media because of the anger I knew would ensue on each site; I honestly didn’t want any part of that. I would rather watch the results with people of like-mind than try to explain my position to the varying degrees of opinions on social media sites.”

“I didn’t stay up late to watch. My husband did, and he told me the results as soon as I got up this morning.”
