Local Guy Wins!
David Cook won American Idol. I'm actually shocked. I really didn't think he would win.
I am proud of him. I remember a little more than a year ago seeing a picture of him in his mother's cubicle. She told me he was living in Tulsa. It was really fun to see her on television and to imagine how proud she must be. She'll never forget this moment. When he teared up, it gave me an ear-to-ear smile thinking about how cool it was for him.
Of course, she may not appreciate me much since I wasn't a fan of the cookbook fund-raiser she suggested at work about three years ago. Oh well. She did participate in a volunteer event I helped to plan a year ago. Her husband was there too.
Now I can say that I once worked at a volunteer event with the American Idol's mom and step-dad. Does that make me famous?
