wish for the road to be long
1) Is there a Boston Toastie meet up/farewell/bar crawl ANYTHING? I have seen other states mentioned, but not here.
2) Where are we going to go next week?? Reddit? Slack group? I don't want to lose everything all at once...I would maybe even be willing to contribute to some form of group-submitted link roundup.
I will miss you all, Toasties.
It's not like I've been imagining Barack Obama as my dad for the past 8 years. Nope.
(But those pictures of him with babies! My heart. I can't.)
If Barack Obama were your dad, you'd try to avoid talking to him about politics as you got older and more cynical about policy change. One day, while you were traveling abroad, he would catch you off guard by asking if you were thinking about extending your stay in Denmark. "I don't know," you'd say without thinking, "Sometimes I think it would be nice to live in a country with actual maternity leave policies." The phone would go quiet for a moment, and then your dad would say, "That's tough, hon. You know how hard we're fighting over here to make change." You'd wrap up the conversation with chit-chat about food and your newfound love for bicycles, but before you hung up, your dad would say, "Remember that your mom and I will support you no matter what you do. But if the Bushes could have two generations in this House, I'll be damned if I don't think the Obamas can have three. And your sister, too, even if she put an exclamation mark next to her name on the logo."
