It's Friday. I don't work. I will be working 5 consecutive days before I have another day off. That will be fine, since today is the last day of nobody's favorite specialist. He's headed down to the Wilmington, NC store. I asked him if it was high volume, lots of customers. He told me there were 2 stores in Wilmington and his new store was the one to the north, so evidently he doesn't know. One of the first things people ask is when they transfer is "how busy is the store?" You want to gauge what your workdays will be like. He doesn't know.
Anyway, I slept in this morning because I stayed up last night to watch the final night of the Convention. What about Brayden Harrington, the 13 year old overcoming his stutter, a disability? Didn't that bring a tear to your eye? That was an amazing moment. There were several moments like that.
And of course Joe's speech. I watched the NYT stream, with running commentary. The comments from the NYT political writers have been concise throughout the convention. One of them was monitoring Twitter to provide the Social Media input, another was watching Fox News to get their biased opinions. Me? I was impressed. Biden was clear and concise. I couldn't help but think how Republicans have been trying to paint him as... well, a bit feeble. That man is sharp as a tack. They think the Idiot Jerk is going to run rings around him during the debates, but then Republicans have never been too damn smart. Biden is going to call their president a liar to his face, he may even call him a 'damn liar,' and America will get to see the Idiot Jerk seething with rage. Won't that be nice?
For those who missed it, here Joe's speech:
