a moment of perverse pride

January 7th, 2009

Last night, I was watching this clip of Al Franken debating Ann Coulter when I actually and truly threw up a little in my mouth. I’m not kidding. It wasn’t like I got so grossed out by Coulter. I mean she is so vile that I half think that she is faking, perpetrating this giant hoax in order to be crazy controversial and sell books. Otherwise, she is just plain crazy and destined to wind up drooling into a hospital gown. But in either case, I was watching the clip and I burped, and there it was, a little vomit. In my mouth.

I was strangely proud. I quickly IM’d my BFF Marjorie, who I felt would understand the momentousness of the occasion, and she IM’d back in all caps: I LOVE YOU.

It’s good to have friends who get you.
