My big plans today consist of stockpiling hand sanitizer and Lysol. I have already perfected the art of opening doors with my foot and using my elbow at cash stations, now everyone seems to be acting as crazy as me! I'm not alone.
Here's an excerpt from "The Audacity of Hope," where then-Sen.. Obama wrote of his first meeting with President Bush.
“Obama!” he said, shaking my hand. “Come here and meet Laura. Laura, you remember Obama. We saw him on TV during election night. Beautiful family. And that wife of yours – that’s one impressive lady.”
“We both got better than we deserve, Mr. President,” I said, shaking the First Lady’s hand and hoping that I’d wiped any crumbs off my face.
The president turned to an aide nearby, who squirted a big dollop of hand sanitizer in the president’s hand.
“Want some?” the president asked. “Good stuff. Keeps you from getting colds.” Not wanting to seem unhygienic, I took a squirt.
