During Election 2008 I wrote of dreams I had regarding politics. There was one dream I didn’t mention, however…because I didn’t think it would come true. It was President and First Lady Obama dancing at an inaugural ball. Michelle was wearing a black and white polka dot dress. I dreamed that last summer and kept insisting in my mind that it wasn’t an inauguration I was seeing, but perhaps just a celebration Obama’s nomination. Well, I remembered that dream when I saw an interview in which she was wearing a black and white polka dot dress. As for her ball gown…it isn’t black and white, but the frills are a little polka dottish, are they not?
I don’t know what the significance of polka dots is, but I decided to write it down so no one would think I had given myself over entirely to selective memory.
I don’t know why I’m blogging about this on my 19th birthday. Perhaps because I spent the past two days studying for my second History exam which I just took yesterday. Now I have to get to work on my English assignments: a diagnostic paragraph describing my “Favorite Fictional Character” and an essay on “Three Things In My Purse And How They Define Me”. How exciting.
