Election

The Deadbeat Club invades Bacolod.

In my plight to be a better citizen of this great nation, I volunteered to be an election observer.

My COMELEC accreditation has been approved and I fly to the City of Smiles this Sunday.

Since my office is paying for my good deed, I am expected to perform exceptionally well on this assignment.

A foreign election observer carries a lot of responsibilities. Raft3r was handed an inch thick manual during orientation. It was required reading. I almost cried.

A part of me wanted to back out. But the thought of staying at a luxury hotel for three days free of charge prevailed.
