"What?" she said grumpily, being seventeen and having gone to bed -- as usual -- at Regret O'Clock.
It was now barely 9:00 a.m., and I had just found out.
"Marriage Equality," I said, managing somehow not to shout it at her. "Gay marriage!"
Her eyes opened all the way. "What?"
"The Supreme Court just handed down the decision," I said, bouncing around on her bed some more. "It's legal, it's legal, gay marriage is legal everywhere in America now!"
"Not really," she said. "Really?"
"It just came down!" I bounded from her room to celebrate all over my FB and Twitterfeed. And watch other people celebrate all over FB and Twitter.
It's been one big party, all over America today.

Obama said, and it's worth quoting here, that this decision makes our union a "little more perfect."
To which I say, Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
