The Boy Can't Help It

I knew that somewhere in Obama's Nobel Prize speech, a certain word would appear, up close and personal.  That word is: "Humility." And when Obama, "with great humility," humility of the easiest because purely rhetorical kind, acknowledged receipt of the prize I, listening to the radio, felt my eyes glisten as I silently acknowledged to myself that I had guessed correctly. Yes, I know what you are going to say. You're going to say that it was obvious, that anyone could have predicted it, that I'm silly to feel any satisfaction at all, much less feel proud of myself.

But I do.  In all humility, I do feel proud of myself.
