As this picture shows:
It’s not that I had my picture taken with Ted Cruz, who will be most likely the next Senator from Texas; it’s that we live in a world now where soon-to-be-Senators can get that way via alternate, non-traditional, yet very legitimate paths. Which is neat.
I don’t know why I’m looking down, though: no, wait, I do. Ethyl alcohol.
PS: Yes, that *is* getting to be a notable mustache. Thank you for noticing.
