Where Was I?

1. Where were you when you heard that Ronald Reagan died?
I was at my condo studying. I happened to check my e-mail and click on Foxnews.com, and I saw the headline.

2. Where were you on September 11, 2001?
I was in the reading room of the library at my law school. Someone came to get me and brought me in one of the classrooms. They had pulled down all the screens in the room and were broadcasting CNN live. I walked in the room as the first tower fell.

3. Where were you when you heard that Princess Diana died?
I was a freshman in college. A group of us gals had gone to Wabash for a party and when I got home, my roommate was up watching the news and told me.

4. Do you remember where you were when you heard Kurt Cobain had died?
Nope. Guess that wasn't too significant to me.

5. Take one for The Gipper: What's your favorite flavor of jelly bean?
Pina Colada Jelly Bellys.

6. Where were you when Magic Johnson announced he was retiring from the NBA due to AIDS?
You know, I remember watching it on the news, but I honestly have no idea where I was.

7. Where were you when Reagan was shot?
Don't remember.

8. Where were you when the Challenger exploded?
I was in the cafeteria of my elementary school watching it live.

9. Where were you when the 0J verdict was announced?
I was in AP Calculus class. My teacher had the TV on mute so we could still learn while waiting for the jury to come back. When we saw them return, we held our breath and after they announced it almost everyone in the room went, "WHAT???"

You Said

1. At home on the couch watching TV.
2. Driving to work. Heard it on the radio
3. Asleep on the couch with my three year old nephew sprawled over me (he's not three anymore, of course).
4. Don't know. Don't care
5. Very cherry
6. Dunno
7. Sitting on my grandparents couch.
8. PHS chemistry class. We even got out of a quiz.
9. On the couch at my Aunt's house.

Is it just me or do I seem to spend a lot of time on the couch?

1. I had just taken my son to his friend's birthday party. The guy there had the news on and told me as he handed me size 7 bowling shoes.
2. At my desk, news off, calling a person with whom I would be interviewing for a job on 9/12. She cancelled, and that job evaporated. I spent the rest of the day in a cafe with friends, glued to the news.
3. In my bedroom, packing for a business trip.
4. Nope.
5. Green ones.
6. Don't recall.
7. I was in boarding school. I had just come back to the dorm and heard it from a prefect.
8. In college. I'd returned to the dorm after a class and a friend next door had the news on.
9. At my firm - we gathered around a TV that one of the Executive Assistants had.
