WINCHESTER, Ind. -- Bill Monroe lost by one vote in his bid to return to the Winchester City Council. And here's the clincher to the squeaker of a race:
His wife didn't vote.
The voyeur in me immediately wanted to be a fly on the wall for the conversation between these two. Fortunately for us, the candidate goes ahead and recalls it.
Kathie: "Bill, you lost."
Bill: "Well, how much did I lose by?"
Bill: "Get out of here."
Kathie: "And I didn't vote."
He recalled, "She was embarrassed by it at first. 'Oh my God, look what I've done.'"
They might want to consider just splitting up right now. I can already imagine the conversations five or even ten years from now.
Kathie: Bill, you forgot to take out the trash this morning.
Bill: Oh? Did I? Did I forget something? Oh my, I hope it wasn't something important.
Kathie: (sighing) Never mind. I'll get it.
