Where were you when...???

When my children and grandchildren ask if I remember where I was on the historic day that saw the swearing in of the first black president of the United States of America, I will be able to say, "Yes!"

I waited anxiously all morning, watching streaming video from CNN.comLive. I saw the crowds on the mall, heard the announcement of the children, the first ladies, the president and vice president as they entered. I heard the semi-botched oath and Aretha Franklin. I watched it all in a suspended state of joy and hope, with tears in my eyes...

And then I went and got a pap smear.
