Kate, in the kitchen fryin up some veggies crumbles with taco seasoning; cell phone rings. Auntie asks if I am busy watching TV (she knows me well)- no I am watching TV but not busy. Switch to channel 5- Neighborhood Ball, then she quickly says she'll talk to me later and I can tell she is already getting choked up. She rivals Alison in the quick to cry at happy/touching events.
Beyonce is on a floating circular mini-stage and they first show her from the back. My first thought is DAMN that dress is unflattering. I think I said out loud that B was looking thicker.
And then she starts singing and the Obamas start dancing and I just started crying.
It was the most beautiful thing I have seen on TV. You gotta see the video if you didn't catch it live. I'll post it when I find it. And- LOVED Michelle's dress. Lady knows how to wear clothes.
I feel spoiled that I only had two wait through 2 disappointing election nights and term starts (as disappointing as they were) before getting to tonight. I can't imagine how I would feel if it had been 5, or 15 inaugurations.
