Anticipa-a-tion is Making Me Wait, is Keeping Me Wa-a-a-ting

You can sing the song a little more — I know you want to.

This week, I get to go to Washington D.C. for work. Suffice to say, I’m more than a little excited. I’m pumped!

I’ve never been to the state’s capital and I’ve never gotten to do the really cool thing at work.

Let’s take a moment to list the cool things Angel didn’t get to do:

Meet Sarah Palin

Meet Barack Obama

Interview the Miami heat

Meet Michelle Obama

Hear George W. Bush give a speech

Write about the King and Queen of Spain coming here

The list could go on and on, but I don’t want to bore you. I just want to make it clear that my not getting to do cool things has never been because cool things haven’t come here. I just never get to be the one that goes.

My co-worker went and interviewed Brett Michaels while I stayed behind to write a 15 inch story on an 81-year-old man who died.

So now, finally, I get to do the thing that other people would actually also like to do.

It’s not ground breaking — four other reporters have already gone — but I get to experience something new and exciting.

The trip starts hours before the sun even thinks about shining and is a one-day, round-trip flight from Pensacola to Washington D.C. that takes World War II veterans to see their memorial.

I know it’s going to be a very long and exhausting day, but to see the men who fought for our country getting to experience something so special … I can’t even come up with words (hopefully, that won’t be the case Thursday).

Because of this long day, however, it’s making the rest of this week a breeze.

Yesterday, I had one story not due until Sunday that I worked on and I skipped out of work 30 minutes early because of the anticipated overtime and was able to get some ballet slippers with my sister.

Today, I may just leave a little early again, cause I can.

WooHoo, Washington D.C. lookout — I’m coming at ya!
