Overheards- The Inaugural Edition

Scene: The darkened den of our house. H and I are watching the Golden Globes (shocking, I know. I can hardly believe he was there myself!) and yet another commercial for the upcoming inauguration flashes across the screen.

H: Isn't the inauguration next Tuesday?

Me: Yeah, I know. I keep thinking it's this week the way people are talking about it and promoting it. It's driving me crazy.

H: That's it! I'm done. I'm over it. Enough. I'm officially sick of the hype. I mean, just get your cardboard box of photos, turn on the light in the Oval Office and get to work already.

Don't get me wrong, we're excited and all that but if you lived here you would feel like the four walls were closing in on you too. Our roads are being closed down. School is canceled and none of our bridges will be open. We couldn't even go to this blessed event if we tried!

  1. I'm jealous! I have to wake up at 4 am Wednesday morning to watch and still go to work that day.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
