10 Things I’m Sure I’ll Mumble to Myself While Watching the Inauguration

As I’m watching the inauguration today I expect to at least once have each of the following thoughts:

 

“God bless television.”

“I can’t believe I’m still getting free cable TV!”

“I can’t believe they’re showing this without any commercials! Yes! Free at last!”

“What? COMMERCIALS??!! Kill me now.” 

“Look at Washington, D.C. No American can ever go to that city and not be overwhelmed by feelings of patriotism. Those buildings!”

“There he is! There he is!”

“Barack Obama is our skinniest president ever.”

“I still can’t get over that name. ‘Barack Obama’! It’s like music. It’s so crazy. I love it.”

“I’ll bet the day they discover that microwave popcorn kills you I drop dead.”

“I am so overwhelmed by the glory that is the American constitutional system of government that now I have to cry.”

    I'm listening on NPR, so I don't get a lot of commercials.

    The visuals aren't as good, though.
