the day i learned about the death of michael crichton

black american woman drunk with coffee enters the bus and incessantly spoke about yesterday’s victory of us-president elect barack obama.

“…yada..yada..yada…obama won!...yada…yada…yada…the first black american president! beat that!...yada..yada..yada…obama won!”

black american man sitting opposite the woman stood up and said,
“obama was born from a white american.”

black american woman drunk with coffee raised her eyebrows and replied,
“he’s the hope of this nation, and he’s black.”

“he still came from a white american woman. and besides, he’s a politician like all of them.”

“…yada…yada…yada…but he won, and we put him in position. he will bring change.”
“we’ll see in the next couple of days. he’s just like them.”

black american woman took a sip from her coffee cup.

“oh what’s with all the negative energy? …yada…yada…yada…obama won!”

“we’ll see.” then the black american man took his exit from the bus.
minutes after, peace reigned in the air.
