You can sing the song a little more — I know you want to.
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.
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.
WooHoo, Washington D.C. lookout — I’m coming at ya!
