Be Prepared! (or, Ding Dong…)

So, as I was watching the old guard (literally – have you ever seen more old white men and women together than today on the way to the Inauguration?) come into the stands and be introduced, I couldn’t help but notice that one of the Biden clan had her child in one hand and *her knitting* in the other! Right there for all to see, in infamy, some fake fair isle socks! I mean, I’m sure it will be long and possibly boring, but won’t you be busy paying attention to your 3 year old child all day? I know I’d have knitting, but I’d keep it hidden at least until I sat down to watch that other guy (theme song of the day, “Ding dong, the witch is dead …”) give his leaving town speech. (Hooray!)

I didn’t watch the Inauguration as I had to work (take the kids to school) but I saw the procession and I loved seeing the swearing in even in pictures. I feel like a giant weight has lifted.
