So I suppose everyone will now have another "where were you?" moment to talk about. November 4, 2008, 11:00 PM. I love having this milestone to remember, since "where were you?" moments tend to be for horrific events, not amazingly wonderful ones. My story is hilariously lame, but as Sweetney said to me this morning, "that’s one for the scrapbook." So here ya go.
On November 4, 2008 at 11:00 PM, I was alone in my apartment, writing an article for MamaPop about gross-out reality shows. I was thoroughly engrossed (grossed! Get it?!?!) in a paragraph about the show wherein people eat until they puke when the election was called. I think I said something like "Baroo?" and then sat in shock with a stupid grin on my face for the remainder of the night. I’d say something more, but I’m still a little bit in shock. The greatest kind of shock.
President Obama. Man, I’ll never get tired of saying that.
