  •  The crowd was great... (14+ / 0-)

    People were singing and laughing and random chants of "yes, we can" & "Obama" would break out.  Even though we were in line for hours in the freezing cold!  

    Once we got through the blue gates and found a spot to stand, we were chatting with the people around us.  There was a family, (mom, dad, and two or three daughters) next to me and I was chit-chatting w/ the mom.  I said something about how Obama seems sooooo nice and she said "he is nice," then revealed to me that he watched Michelle Obama's DNC convention speech at their house in Kansas City, they were the "Gerardo Family" to whom Sasha famously shouted, "Hi Gerardo Family!!"  I told her I knew EXACTLY who she was!

    She just suddenly felt compelled to tell me but she did so in a quiet, bashful way...it was so cute, she reminded me of my mom the was she didn't want to sound boastful but was not able to keep the information in!!  She said they were also on the train with Obama the day before...what a lucky family!!

    It's not easy being a Floridian: PS I'm a lawYER now; no longer a lawSTUDENT.
