Nice Time: Little Girl Meets Hillary Clinton, Joyously Freaks Out
This is 10-year-old Macy Friday, who was in the crowd at Denver's Union station Monday when Hillary Clinton came to Colorado to campaign for Sen. Mark Udall. Hillz saw Macy in the crowd, waved her over for pictures, and Macy instantly earned her place as an icon of Kid Enthusiasm, which frankly is the very best kind there is. That right there is a genuine "I got a puppy, no, TWO puppies!" face.
There's a political story about the campaigning and all that, too, but for a late-afternoon nice time, let's just leave it at one excited, overwhelmed little girl who's undoubtedly been very distracted in school all day today, and now has a hell of a photo to show off for the rest of her life.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
