Watched the Presidential Inauguration in a coffee shop today. Let me know where you were in the comments section. Like a lot of America, the cafe opted for a live feed from a website. To my dismay, there was too much online traffic which slowed the server. According to my received text messages, the oath was being taken while I was viewing Yo Yo Ma play, "A Gift to Be Simple". Although Barack's image was frozen, at least I got to hear him become president.
A new president! Woohoo! An African-American, and I'm not watching a movie! History, Baby!
I thought the commercial that followed was a little anticlimactic.
Are you a smoker? A Harvard graduate? A father of two? No reason is too irrelevant to savor a good stick of Blezident gum. From Black Choice, the makers of Beyon-shea butter, comes a gum that makes you proud to be an American. Nothing says progressiveness like its dark color and nothing says cool like its smooth cognac flavor.
Chews or lose. Blezident is the chewing gum of choice for black presidents.
