Sweating The Small Stuff

It’s election night.
I’ve waited eight years for this.
Will Obama win?

Fire up the laptop
To check exit poll status.
Wait—no Internet!

Panic floods through me
Our new computer is broke
I feel sick inside.

And in the meantime
Obama makes history.
Someone please slap me.

I should feel glad but
Frustration curbs elation
Would yoga help me?

Haiku Friday
Read more haikus here.

The jubilation will last longer than it takes for your laptop to get fixed. So there's no need to slap you. Maybe a little yoga WOULD help. Breathe deep. Let it out slow. There.

Lovely Haiku.

Wasn't that an amazing night!

I feel like we are all ready to buckle down, work hard and anticipate a new era.

Oh my. You've since been able to catch the speeches on YouTube, though, no? McCain's gracious concession and Obama's awesome acceptance are truly beautiful speeches.

Great haikus. Now you have a story to tell about what you were doing and thinking the moment Obama won the presidential race. Maybe not that exciting of a story, but a story none the less!

We just "tagged" your blog over at the Green Baby Guide. Check out Sunday's post to see what this means!
