This morning, on our way into work:
Me (thinking about how the last two Presidential elections were an exercise in greater and greater disappointment): I'm just not gonna get excited about Obama yet. I don't want to get burned again.
Aa: Why? Look, he's not the Cubs.
Me: (silence) (stunning realization that I have in fact treated these elections like baseball for the past 8 years)
Me: (changing subject b/c I'm embarassed) Um. Crap, I forgot to get money. I wanted to get coffee this morning.
