Am I the only person who does this?

Every few days, I venture over to the Wikipedia article about the US President just so I can see that it has Joe Biden as the incumbent. It's not because I still can't believe Biden won or that Trump is gone. It's just nice to be able to see little things like that and know that I don't have to be ashamed of who is running the country. I know there are years if not decades of challenges ahead thanks to Trump and most of the GOP. But the little reminders thaf we might finally be on the right path again is cathartic and heartwarming.

1. LOL, I haven't gone to Wikipedia, but when I pull my copy of the WaPo out of its box every morning,

I scan the headlines for any mention of President Biden.

2. I still catch myself....

....seeing headlines like "Justice Department says ________" or "Press Secretary Answers Questions about _______" and think to myself "who gives a shit what those lying assholes have to say?". Then I remember who is running the show now.

3. I do the same thing! I'm still not used to it. I don't know if I'll ever recover from PTSD!

6. I do that, too!! I'm so used to Dipshit tweeting out his bullshit that that is my first

reaction.

It's soooo nice to do a doubletake and realize it's not the orange maniac anymore.

4. I'm starting to get used to hearing

"The President said or the President did......." and not cringing at the mental image of Donald Trump. "Oh no, not Trump. They're talking about Joe!" I'll get used to it eventually and accept that this is the norm, but right now I am enjoying that little moment of realization that we have a decent, competent man in the White House. I am determined not to take it for granted.

7. I'd just mentioned to my wife and friends a few days ago...

...that it was taking me a while to get over my cringe reaction to the word "president"!

8. You know, it brought me back to four years ago

whenever someone on TV would say, "The President......." and for a second I pictured Barack Obama. Then came the grim reality that they meant Donald Trump. It was like a punch in the gut every time. Now I get to experience it in reverse.
