George W. Bush on 9/11: "But the day ended on a relatively humorous note."
Advertisements [?]
Ladies Home Journal:

Peggy Noonan (the interviewer): You were separated on September 11th. What was it like when you saw each other again?

Laura Bush: Well, we just hugged. I think there was a certain amount of security in being with each other than being apart.

George W. Bush: But the day ended on a relatively humorous note. The agents said, youll be sleeping downstairs. Washingtons still a dangerous place. And I said no, I cant sleep down there, the bed didnt look comfortable. I was really tired, Laura was tired, we like our own bed. We like our own routine. You know, kind of a nester. I knew I had to deal with the issue the next day and provide strength and comfort to the country, and so I needed rest in order to be mentally prepared. So I told the agent were going upstairs, and he reluctantly said okay. Laura wears contacts, and she was sound asleep. Barney was there. And the agent comes running up and says, Were under attack. We need you downstairs, and so there we go. Im in my running shorts and my T-shirt, and Im barefooted. Got the dog in one hand, Laura had a cat, Im holding Laura

Laura Bush: I dont have my contacts in , and Im in my fuzzy house slippers

George W. Bush: And this guys out of breath, and were heading straight down to the basement because theres an incoming unidentified airplane, which is coming toward the White House. Then the guy says its a friendly airplane. And we hustle all the way back up stairs and go to bed.

Mrs. Bush: And we just lay there thinking about the way we must have looked.

Peggy Noonan (interviewer): So the day starts in tragedy and ends in Marx Brothers.

George W. Bush: Thats right we got a laugh out of it.



NEVER FORGET THIS.
