Where were you?

Tuesday, January 20, 2009
When asked that question, years from now, I'll be able to say that we set up the projector in the board room and cancelled our conference calls. I think the expression "history in the making" or "watching history be made" is cheesy and over-used, because history is made, every single day, monumentous occasions or not.

I thought about my grandparents, who lived in DC, and what my Grandpa Al might have said about today. I really don't know- and I really don't know if I want to know.

But yes, when asked, like I pester my own father about his whereabouts during historic dates, I'll have an answer:

"...and then we went to the Casino for free lunch."
