George W. Bush!
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! tis true! i met the most wonderfully kind President G.W. Bush! WOW! what a memory!
trav told me he would be in phx on thursday, today, dec. 9. so yesterday, i had to stand in line, at barnes & noble for 2 hours to buy a book from them and get a wristband. the blue wristband guaranteed you a signed book! i got the golden (or blue) ticket :) i was in!
so we woke up, at 5:30am. this morning. to get to barnes & noble early to go through security and see my friend, gwb. trav didn't even have a wristband (he had to work! who doesn't take off to meet the President?!?! even just for a couple hours!), but he kindly waited in line with me for 2 hours. then he left for work.
the line started moving around 8:30am. by 9:30am, i was in barnes & noble. only to see that i had more waiting to do! the line seemed forever. i finally see the black curtain that he was behind! there is hope (and not the Obama kind :) jk libies aka liberals)!
i spot him! i can't get over his cuteness! i tell the woman in front of me, who i kindly befriend after waiting in line with her for 3.5 hours, oh he's so cute! i kept saying it!
then it's my turn, everyone is rushing your through the line (all the workers and secret service men). and i tell the barnes & noble woman who directs me up to him next: you're so lucky- you get to see him allll morning! he's so cute! she laughed and said- ya i am!
i'm eye to eye with george w. bush, he is sitting behind the table, which was on a platform. i look at him and say: OH MY GOSH you're so cute! he starts laughing and with his fat TX accent replys- well i don't think anyone's ever called me cute before! we start laughing and i go- can i have a hug?!?! he leans over the big a** (sorry for the language but i must paint an accurate picture and the table was HUGE) table, and gives me a BIG hug and says- thanks for coming out! i walked away saying- oh my gosh he's just soooo cute!
lol. what a memory! and a story to tell! he really was the cutest. of everything i practiced saying ("you looked great on oprah!" "loved you in the white house!" "thanks for the tax cut for the next 2 years" a simple "i love you!") and all i can tell him is how cute he is?!?! LOL
all this to say: GO BUY THE BOOK! i cannot put it down! i'm loving every second of it! you will too.
God bless America!
