Not Just Another Day

At a job I hated: nanny for the world’s worst screamer.

Early.  Tired.

The news was on…what’s going on? I asked the mom.

Some plane hit a building in NY.

Sitting.  Watching.  Soaking it in.

Seeing the second plane come onto the screen in real time.

I’m pretty sure I yelled out loud.

As if I were watching a football game on TV.  STOP.STOP.STOP.STOP!

Frantically calling my husband…unware in the histology lab.

The world had changed, and he didn’t even know it.

A day I’ll never forget.

A day you’ll never forget.
