This morning, following my 6.30am Hot Yoga Barre class (no judgment, you wear a bikini all year here) as I drank my morning cup of coffee (what, no tea?), I forgave the BBC for CBS (sacrilege!) and tried to embrace America.
And then it happened: " As Obama prepares for his visit to Los Angeles today...". "Oh shit" I thought, "that's really going to fuck up the traffic."
What have they done to my brain?! I have been here barely a month and already my number one concern when the President of the United States comes to town is the TRAFFIC?! This can't be normal; so I checked in with the Hopa. "Coincidentally, that is exactly what I thought when I read the news re: Obama. Welcome to your new order of priorities."
Apparently, we are not the only ones: "Obama is the Marie Antoinette of the 21st century." and other comments...
