didn't see it coming...

I was sitting right here at my computer... typing away.

I was writing the post for today (a different post than this one) and in the background I had the TV on waiting to hear the last two primary returns for the Democratic Presidential candidate when a voice interrupted the droning on of Senator McCain to say that Barack Obama was the presumptive candidate.

I picked up my phone and called Mr. Kaos to tell him... he was at his office finishing up some work... I wanted him to know... I wanted to be the one to tell him.

It wasn't a surprise. I had just said to him Obama only needed 9 delegates to clinch the nomination.

We both knew it was coming.

But I cried.

Why did I cry? I was proud. I was breathing a sigh of relief.

I knew he would make it, we saw that coming... I didn't realize I would have such an emotional reaction to it though.

I cried because I was thinking, hoping... Yes we can.

You CRIED???

And your willing to admit to it on the interwebs? What about your badass street cred?

(I think it's cute.)

Too bad your name isn't Hillary Clinton, 'cause apparently she hasn't gotten the memo, yet.

I was very happy too. If he hadn't I think I woudlve had to vote for McCain. Now, all is right in my world.

It's pretty weird to realize you're actually part of history, when it's happening, huh?

I suppose this is a different kind of crying than what you do when thinking about me wearing Crocs.
