18. I was reading articles on BuzzFlash....
when a picture of the first tower hit appeared.

I called my best friend, who used to post here under
the name of "Mrs. Grumpy"...while I was telling her
about the plane, I flipped on the TV and freaked out
when the second plane hit.

She ran over to my house with her son and her dog...
and we spent the day watching the TV, waiting in VAIN
for a member of the administration to tell us what the
fuck was going on.

All of the cowards had gone into hiding.

We both became
BIG fans of Peter Jennings and Richard Clarke that day.
