As if there aren't enough reasons to love Barack Obama, the picture to the right gives me all the more reason.
A little history. I have long been opposed to the high five; I find it awkward and unnatural.
So how fantastic is it now that the fist bump has come into common use.
I was skeptical at first, until one of the vice presidents of the university made it a point to greet and dismiss everyone in our office with a fist bump on a regular basis. Although at first it was funny to me, I quickly warmed up to the process. In fact, I started using it myself around campus and socially.
It's just so... endearing. Endearing is the word I use to describe things (or people) that are awkward yet irresistibly lovable.
And I love that Barack and Michelle Obama fist bumped as he was announced the democratic nominee. That look on her face, to me, says, "Okay, Boo, now you go out there and win that presidency!" :) Ooh, I love it.
I can't wait to find my Boo like that and live a life-long fist bump of love.
Long live the fist bump! Anyone else with me on this?
