My sister, Joy, is coming into town on Tuesday (hooray!). Tuesday happens to be a special day for another reason as well. It’s the day Barack Obama officially becomes our 44th president. And my sister wants to celebrate. In fact, she’s given each of us assignments for the party. My brother (an incredible writer—see his blog at jonwbecker.wordpress.com) is supposed to write a short poem about Obama to be recited, I’m supposed to come up with a game we’ll play with some trivia about Bush and Obama, and my sister-in-law is going to be whipping up a little something called Inauguritas. When my sister left me a voicemail message about the party, she claimed it was going to be a “super, fun-filled event.”
Let me tell you, the girl is pysched. I’m not sure if her excitement stems more from the fact that that tool Bush will no longer be in office or more about what she thinks Obama can and will do while in office (it’s probably a little of both), but when I heard she had even ordered a special cake for the occasion, I knew she was really cranked up!
In fact, given her excitement, maybe our new president should consider her for some sort of official White House post. He’d certainly do well to have someone like her in his corner!
