Good Man, Mark and I went to the Inauguration again this year. I charged my battery and then…left my camera on all night.

That sort of ended up being how our day went.

We got stuck behind the broken Jumbotron, so even though we should have been able to see (or at least hear!), we got neither.

But Mark and I did practice our Presidential Chin Jut.

Obama Style

The people watching was fun, of course. Out of frame, someone was selling Obama and Romney condoms. We didn’t see the naked painted lady, though.

And we weren’t the only ones taking photos of the Starbucks pile!

Almost ten miles of walking later, we finally arrived back at Mark’s house, where we streamed the President’s speech to see what we missed.

So it wasn’t quite the experience we had on 2009, but I’m still glad I went.
