President Obama's new campaign office opened up right across from where I work, and they were giving away tickets to an event he was speaking at in the county where I live on Thursday, which is my day off. Even though I live relatively close to Washington DC, my chances of ever seeing the President are not that great, so I attended.
I have to admit it took a lot time--I waited in line after work on Tuesday to get my ticket. Then I waited in the searing heat to get into the event that had crushing crowds. Then I got home late on a night where I have to get up early the next morning--I don't know that I would do it again, but this time, I'm glad I did.
