Yesterday was an exciting day for one reason only. It was the very last day of Bush being in office.
I know today is really even better, but I like the feeling of something about to happen, like the beginning of a new era.
Calling all my friends just to tell them, “This is the last time I’ll talk to you while Bush is in office.”
Kissing the kids goodnight, “This is the last kiss while Bush is in office.”
Saying goodnight to Blane over the phone (he’s in San Francisco) and calling him back because I forgot to tell him, “This is the last time we say goodnight while Bush is in office.”
You know what song is stuck in my head? That one from “The Wizard of Oz” when they’re all singing, “The wicked witch is dead.”
I thought about and savored this moment in my head for eight long years. Sometimes I wish I didn’t care so much about politics. It can be so divisive.
To the rest of the world out there (non-Americans), we are all Americans today. Join us and celebrate President Obama!
I have to add this one sour note: George Bush is moving to Dallas today. I gotta get the fuck outta here.
P.S. This is my last post while Bush is still in office.
