It's a little embarrassing, but hey, it happens to the best of us: sometimes, you get a little, you know, overexcited, and something happens before you want it to. That's OK.
You have a friend in today's news cycle called "a fish." It apparently came on President Obama's shoe when he picked it up at a recent visit to Kanakanak Beach in Dillingham, Alaska. CNN has the details:
"Uh-oh, what's happening there?" he asked.
The woman standing by him explained that the salmon was spawning.
"Did you see that? Something got on my shoes," Obama called to the press. "He was spawning a little bit, which, generally you don't want fish spawning on your feet."
"He was happy to see me," Obama added.
I guess the president is pretty good with his hands.
