I can hardly believe it's true. How exciting the possibility that a Democrat has won the presidency!
Me: I'm so excited, when will we know it's official?
Hubby: What do you mean "official?"
Me: You know, how long will it take to do the recount?
Hubby: What recount?
Me: You know, the recount they do when the Democrat wins!
Hubby: Are you high on crack?
Me: You know, when Gore won the election, we had to do that recount and then Bush became the president.
Hubby: We're not doing that this time. Obama is the president.
Me: You mean no hanging chads, Supreme Court, and all that?
Hubby: Yes, you can go ahead and be happy now.
