Kids were screaming, yelling, crying, clawing each other, and knocking each other over to get out of the way. You should have been there.

All in all, it sure made for an exciting Election Day! Maybe Neil will find Mr. Wiggles. Maybe grown-ups will stop saying “Blah blah blah blah.” Maybe Andrea will invite me to her birthday party. Maybe people will stop running into doors. Maybe we'll go on a field trip to see the new Batman movie. Maybe people will stop talking about stumps all the time. Maybe Alexia will realize she is a fictional character. Maybe ladies will
stop sticking babies in my face. Maybe I'll make a Mother's Day card for my mom next year. Maybe the guys will stop saying I love Andrea. Maybe Mayor Hubble will find a way to get out of jail again.

But it won't be easy!

*
What does any of this have to do with Mayor Hubble?

*
That's grown-up talk for “What are
you
doing here?”

*
That's a prize they give out to people who don't have bells.

*
Okay, okay, I promise there won't be any more stump jokes.

*
But not really. You should mop the floor with a
mop
. Mopping the floor with a person is weird.

*
Grown-ups get mad when you say “butt.” Nobody knows why.
