All right! Here he is. Chosen from among his peers to fly out first and be given to one lucky person! I like him! I think he's very cute. His name might be Beauregard. He's made out of cotton fabric and polyester stuffing, with a beaded hanger and just for giggles a little pair of glasses. He thinks it makes him look smart.
Wouldn't you like Beauregard to go home with you? If so, leave a comment here tomorrow and you might be the name that's picked! If you can find time, of course. If you're not glued to your TV set watching history take place. I am so excited about the inaguration tomorrow, I wish I had an Obama t-shirt, and had taken the time to make some Obama snacks. Maybe some Spam sushi from Hawaii, or a big bowl of chili, reportedly his favorite food. When I voted for him, all the way back in November, I will never forget the feeling I had when I pushed the button choosing him. I wanted to push it again. And again. Then I tried pushing it really hard, as if that would somehow convey my enthusiasm to the powers that be. I actually looked around the room, wanting to share that feeling with someone else. I wanted someone to high five me, or do that thing where you jump up and bump chests. I settled for grinning around the room like an idiot before finishing my selections. There's such a wonderful feeling of hope and expectation right now. Sure, it might all change in six months, a year. Who can say what his term will bring us? It could all go to crap, sure. I'm not an idiot, I know he's a politician at the bottom line, and he's just a guy. A guy with his own quirks and hang ups that will affect, (effect?) how he does his job. But right now, today, tomorrow, I have hope in my heart that he might just makes things a little bit better than they are. Isn't that all any of us can hope for? For our leaders, for ourselves? Don't we all just want to make the world just a hair better than it was yesterday? If we all keep that in mind, how could it go wrong?
But hey, if you're a republican and think I'm full of crap, then don't you want to win this bird just out of spite? So enter!
It's a brand new day.
Ok, this is my first give - away in my relatively new blog, so I didn't think to put in a deadline and some details! It seems like everyone else is giving it until Friday to pick a winner, and who am I to blow against the wind?
So Friday it is, when Beauregard will fly away to his new home! Thanks to everyone who has left a comment! I really appreciate it! I am both humbled and tickled beyond belief by the gracious comments!
