So this is the scene. My husband is riding with a sales rep in her car yesterday in Atlanta. Her phone buzzes with a text message. She checks it, chuckles and tilts the phone toward him so he can read it. And this is what it says:
HELP! My TV is broken. No matter what channel I put it on all it will play is the scene from Planet of The Apes where the apes take over the white house.
I am glad to say that I truly didn’t get it at first.
OH MY FUCKING GOD!
Yesterday was one of the top five days of my entire life. TOP FIVE. I am not nearly as zealotly(nope , not a real word) worshiping Obama as some people, but I am confident that if he can do 1/3 of what people expect of him we will be a better people and a better country. (hell, a better world)
And then I am reminded about assholes like that.
The new president has a long four years ahead of him. And for the first time, just like with the election. I am prepared to help.
On a side note:
