Watching tv with total strangers
So the inauguration snuck up on me this year. Well, actually, I for some reason thought it was at night. I guess because of all the commercials about parties and what not and my failing memory. (Once I thought about it for a second I rememberd people huddled in long trench coats in broad daylight as they held up their hand and were sworn in.) All this to say that I had scheduled a physical therapy appointment for when it was supposed to start and wouldn't you know it my therapist came out to call me name right as they were about to swear the president in. Luckily she wanted to watch it too so we stood there huddled under the tv in the clinic lobby watching. And there were about twenty different patients, nurses, etc. huddled around and we all chit chatted and thoroughly enjoyed the moment. Except for one whino who made a point to be loud and rude and completely not paying attention but it really just added to the surrealness of it all. Who did you watch it with?
