prior to the results coming in, i tried to go around the room and get a sense of why each person wanted this fantastic man to win. i didn't really generate any intelligent conversation but hey, we were a little drunk. what are ya gonna do?
we were in the middle of a riveting Apples to Apples game (one in which i happened to be winning) when we looked over and seemingly out of nowhere, the TV was telling us the 44th president of the country is Barack Obama.
and out came the champagne...
behold our smiling faces! these are the faces of people drunk on champagne who just witnessed an amazing part of history.
