But a couple more weddings could shift the odds in my favor.
Love is patient.
Dozens of times.
But after Saturday I’m seeing its meaning in a whole new light.
Sure, being the father-of-the bride is draining – both emotionally and financially – but I now see a benefit on the horizon I’ve never imagined before.
I’ll no longer have to go through life being out-voted in my own household by 4-1.
With new son-in-law Joel fresh on the scene, there’s bound to be a seismic shift in the math, so I now have high hopes of seeing more 4-2 family votes going on around here.
And all I can say… it’s about time!
So if my other two girls will now just play their cards right (with a bit of subtle nudging from dear ol’ dad) I can finally see a future where the odds are totally even.
I see potentially significant electoral gains.
Now admittedly, this trend is probably way “too micro” (that is, way too self-serving on my part) for futurist David Zach.
But we can all find out at tomorrow’s lunch’n’learn Lunchinar.
For future-shaping school leaders and communicators, our conversation with David couldn’t come at a better time.
I doubt if Lunchinar host Holly McCaw will ask David about the relevancy and real-world impact of my recent wedding & family vote revelation.
Holly’s the mother of an all-girl household –
and I’m fairly certain she likes the math in her home just the way it is.
