The Coronation of The Sun King

File this under "Times when I wish I had a camera phone."

Yesterday, as I waited in the lobby of Cancerville Clinic for my dad to pick me up, I spotted a guy wandering about in a black parka-like jacket. Pretty normal looking from the front, but when he walked past me, I got an eye full. Across the back of the jacket was emblazoned this mosaic of images: Obama's profile, the White House, "44th President", and a bunch of other stuff I couldn't quite make out. All in little red, white, and blue rhinestone. Rhinestones. As in BEDAZZLER.

For real.

Rhinestones.

Seriously.

The President. The RHINESTONE President.

It really was a bit too much.

And that's all I have about that.

My staff is looking at me like I have lost it because I am seriously laughing here.

We drove 12 hours - or at least it seemed like 12 hours - from Indiana to go to the Inauguration. Believe me, those rhinestone items were on caps, tshirts. We had a great time and it was a wonderful day.

You know that Uncle Mike has one of those jackets! Bob wants to borrow it ... for one of those October parties at your parents house.
