Where were you?

During 9/11?

I was watching The Today Show with my (now) wife eating a bowl of Fruit Loops. I saw the 2nd plane hit live on the Today show because they had traffic helicopters covering what they thought was a fire in one of the towers.

I skipped my first college class (for the first time that year) and went to the second one which was let out after 15 minutes.

Crazy.

--------------------------------------------

Yeah, so remember how I said I would post on Thursday? When I said "tomorrow" I meant "tomorrow in guy time". Which means "within the next few days give or take". Not to be confused with the duration of business time. 30 minutes quickly becomes 4 minutes of an elbowy, sweaty romp.

Either way, I'll get an update on running, yard work, and general hilariousness this afternoon!

It was my senior year in high school. I was driving to school listening to the radio, and whoever was talking at the time just went "holy fuck, omg...." and just told what was happening. I got to my class, which was history, and we just sat and watched what was happening on TV with our mouths open. I don't remember what happened afterwards.

I was in the newsroom. Once we got over the initial shock, one team went IMMEDIATELY to Offutt and the other to UNO where a professor on Afghan studies was. We left after the 2nd plane hit. Hearing on the radio that the Pentagon got hit while driving/speeding to Offutt was surreal. Listening to our Assignment Editor freak out on the phone (which he NEVER did) was even more surreal. I barely remember the rest of the day.

I was in Japan in an air force barracks having a party (midnight over there) to celebrate the oncoming typhoon... obviously the night took a dramatic change.

I was asleep in my college apt and woke up to a roommate's mom calling to tell us what happened. I then got dressed, walked to the business school (where everyone was huddled around the tvs usually displaying stock market news), and I think I went to my first class and then the rest were canceled.
