I pride myself on being up on news and knowing pop culture, but this week that’s gone to seed. Instead this was a week I reorganized my files. Ah, what a feeling! Long overdue.
Having dinner with my mom and sisters last night. They knew every detail of the inauguration.
“Did you hear Richard Blanco’s poem?” ( watch it here, quite good)
Me “no” I missed everything. No school that day and I chose to sleep in.
“It was incredible. So beautiful”
“I loved Medger Evers widow. Wow, what a speaker.”
I had managed to catch Michele Obama’s ball gown when I was at the gym and liked it.
They went on. ”Do you think Beyonce lip synced? I don’t think it matters.”
Hmm, I knew she was there, but that’s about it.
“I saw Bill Clinton looked healthy” I contributed.
Then they started talking about Hillary Clinton testifying about Benghazi. I did finally listen to a bit of it this morning, but they had watched the whole thing.
“She is exhausted and she is pissed. I like her attitude.” I had missed some good drama there.
“Hey, ” I said, ” what about Lance Armstrong on Oprah? I saw some of that.”
The sisters snarled. ”He can go crawl in a hole.”
I will have to read a weekly digest of some sorts at some point. Just Vivien’s homework feels like a part time job. But, they should see how good my files look! Well, I’ll save that bit of news for our next dinner out!
