A Missed Opportunity

I failed you on Friday. In a big way.

I was out riding around town when all of a sudden I started to see police everywhere. After a few minutes of buzzing around, I noticed they were at every single intersection. It was like the whole police force was out. Soon, the lights came on and they started blocking streets. About a mile up Ward Parkway I saw demonstrators--a lot of them. In fact, there were hundreds of them. I finally put two and two together: George was in town.

So I quickly pulled off the road and strapped the camera to my helmet and buzzed around the protesters and the house where George was "popping into" for a quick fundraiser (about $450,000 for Jim Talent). I even perched myself high atop a hill and videoed the Presidential motorcade and all of the white secret service vans. I even shot the presidential helicopter as it probed the surroundings for things out of the ordinary (although no one seemed to think a motorcycle with something strapped to the front of the helmet was odd). It was really cool. Honest.

So then I ran home and popped open the camera and learned that I had accidentally left my memory card in my computer. I got about 20 seconds of me putting on my gloves. Grrrrrrrrrr.

My bad. I promise to make it up to you. Maybe.

So how will you make it up? Will you be paying visits to readers' homes? ;)

I agree with Jess, ARE YOU COMING TO MY HOUSE!! I will make sure I am wearing somthing nice (and slutty)

As I am thinking, I would rather you show up at my door. You would be greeted with a martini and a "heyyyy." I think you would appreciate that more than he would!!
