Of course Declan had off school on Monday for President’s Day. Most of the day was spent bowling with his friend Vaughn, but afterwards, Declan and his dad stopped by the office to say hi to me. Which, of course, meant Declan had to make the rounds with all my coworkers since he is a total rock star at the office. One exchange had several people prairie-dogging out of their cubes with ear-splitting grins.
Andrea: So, Declan, why are you off school today?
Declan: It’s President’s Day.
Andrea: Ohhhh. And which president are you celebrating?
Declan: President Obama.
