How Obama Might Have Received the Nobel News: A Fantasy

So you're roused from sleep and told you won a Nobel Peace Prize, arguably the loftiest award in the solar system. How do you feel?
President Obama was "surprised," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. And . . . that's it? Surprised? What about elated to have achieved such a distinction? Or frustrated that it will distort a precarious agenda? We're left to wonder and invent what might have happened Friday in those early hours in the White House . . .
The phone rings in the master bedroom. President Obama, groggy, picks up the phone.
GIBBS [on the phone]: Mr. President, it's Gibbs. Sorry to wake you, but we have a situation.
OBAMA: What's up, Gibbs?
GIBBS: The Norwegians, Mr. President. The Norwegians have really done it this time.
OBAMA: Gibbs, are you still out? With Axelrod? Have you been to bed yet?
GIBBS: Sir, they've awarded you the Nobel Prize.
He turns to his wife.
OBAMA: Michelle. Wake up. I told you my speeches and two autobiographies were better than anything Philip Roth ever scribbled out. Let's scratch the Nobel Prize for Literature from my bucket list.
Michelle Obama rolls over.
GIBBS: No. Mr. President. You've won the Nobel Peace Prize.
The president looks at the ceiling and sighs.
OBAMA: This is for the beer summit?
GIBBS: The beer summit was not cited in the announcement.
OBAMA: I brought some serious peace to that section of Boston, Gibbs.
GIBBS: You did, sir. But the prize seems to be for your effort to make the world a better place -- less war, more understanding between nations, tamping down nuclear proliferation.
OBAMA: We just bombed the moon, Gibbs. And we have a war council meeting this afternoon to discuss Afghanistan.
Both men are silent for a moment.
GIBBS: That's a bit awkward.
OBAMA: Should I decline the prize?
MICHELLE [sitting up]: It would look nice between your Grammys.
OBAMA: Michelle's right. It would look nice between my Grammys. Maybe I should accept it, but say that it's really everyone's award.
GIBBS: Good thinking. But when you give your press conference, you'll have to acknowledge that we're at war. Or wars, rather.
OBAMA: We'll say we're ending the war in Iraq, and as for Afghanistan -- we're "working in another theater."
GIBBS: Theater. Good. That's what this all is anyway.
