I know it’s been racking your brain for months…
What does DD look like?
For those of you who’d like to take the next step in our relationship and turn into full fledged stalkers, today is your lucky day!
Actually you’re only in luck if you have the 11-17-08 issue of Time Magazine. If you do you can look at page 53 and see yours truly and my kids chatting it up with then Senator Obama.
For those of you who are frugal and get your Time fix at your local library, you can just click here.
The story behind the picture is that it was taken after an Obama campaign event during the primary season. He held a speech about a block away from my house, then took a stroll. During this stroll he was talking on his cell while walking across the street from our house. I thought that was as close as we’d get, but my 3 yr old took action into her own hands.
“Hey, Obama! Hey, Obama!”
I’d like to think we didn’t raise her to think it is polite to just shout out someone’s last name at them to get their attention. But if you’re a cute little girl and the person you’re yelling at is a candidate for political office, I think it’s OK.
He made a bee-line and chatted up my little girl for about a minute before talking to me. We exchanged pleasantries and he went on his way. It was a very cool moment.
Imagine my surprise when six months later I’m sitting in my living room, flipping through my copy of Time and low and behold I get to relive the moment again right before my eyes (My wife said she thought we won the lottery I became so excited).
This isn’t really related to personal finance. I guess I could suggest the idea of if you ever want a cheap thrill, try to have your picture appear in a national news magazine without you knowing it and then discover it yourself while flipping though it.
Let me tell you, you get quite a charge!
Until next time,
