Well, it's almost as if the producers of the local ABC station read my last blog post, because when I checked in this afternoon I saw the headline, "Emotional Moment as Adam Joseph Experiences Total Solar Eclipse."
I clicked that link and while Adam didn't have a total breakdown, he sure enough did tear up on camera as he reported on the eclipse.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, I had a meeting in an office with no windows at 2:00, but luckily it was a quick meeting and I was back outside and on the roof of the parking garage where I'd strategically parked at the peak time of 2:44 p.m. I didn't have glasses or a fancy cereal box viewing mechanism, but someone in the office told me you could take a photo on selfie mode and then look at the photo and see the eclipse.
I did just that, but as I was taking my photos, my boss called, so obviously I had to end the photo shoot and take the call. When I got home, I texted my brother to see if he'd gotten any good eclipse shots.
Of course he had.
Then I remembered I'd taken my own with my selfie camera, and I am about to present you with the best photo of Solar Eclipse 2017.
OH. MY. WORD.
There are so many terrible things about this photo, not the least of which is the fact that I DID NOT EVEN GET THE WHOLE SUN IN THE FRAME.
In that moment I felt a camaraderie with Adam Joseph, in that the eclipse also made me want to cry. And then perhaps call a cosmetic surgeon to inquire about an eye lift and some botox.
