Here are my plans for the day: sit in front of the television.
I had plans, for about five seconds, of making my way down to D.C. to watch history in action. After all, it’s not like I’d have to take time off from work.
Then I laughed myself silly. I hate crowds, and the thought of freezing my butt off just to watch the inauguration of Barack Obama on a Jumbotron just sounds like an uncomfortable and expensive headache. I know a few people who are down there — some covering the event, some escorting high school classes — but I think the couch will suit me just fine.
I debated keeping my son out of school today to watch history live, but I’m hoping they do something to mark the occasion at the middle school (although he’s going to be eating lunch at 10:30, something which still boggles the mind). In any case, it’s set on the DVR, so we can watch it all over again once the kids get home.
What are your plans for the day?
