We were at a coffee shop in Davis Square this weekend, and a slightly scruff older gentleman came up to Tae and said, "Are you running for president? Because I'd vote for you for president."
Tae, amazingly, held her ground, "Do you know who I'm going to vote for? Barack Obama."
Coffee house man, "Wow, you say that better than he does. Are you sure you don't want to be president?"
Tae, "No, I'm going to be a mommy when I grow up."
To his credit, scruffy coffee house man told Tae that she could be a mommy and be president. I followed up by telling her that she had to wait until she was 40. Which basically means that I need to be retired in 36 years so I can take care of her babies while she goes off and works in a museum, writes books, *and* serves as president.
Tae also has told me that she thinks Barack Obama will be the best president because he's a daddy. I did the right thing and told her that John McCain is also a daddy. Oh well. I should just tell her that John McCain doesn't know how to text or send emails. She'll probably say, "DUH. Barack Obama *is* the best."
