Reflections on the Big Day

Reflections on the Big Day

Wednesday, January 21st 5:45pm Dear Diary, Yesterday was such a wonderful day. I really just had the best time. While we were getting ready for the ceremony, Malia asked me to take a picture looking out across the National Mall. I did have a better view, and was only too glad to take the picture. The rest of the day went well, and it was a lot of fun to go to a couple of the Inauguration Balls with Jill, who looked absolutely gorgeous in her red dress. It certainly was fun to get to parade around with her. And I’ll admit that I felt lucky not to be the Obamas, who had to go to 10 balls in 7 hours. I guess they didn’t even get to relax in the White House until after 3 in the morning. How exhausting! Not to mention, we both have so much to do on this first real work day, I can’t imagine starting off this day with so little sleep. Couldnâ??t help but take a jab at Chief Justice John Roberts today. After his goof on the oath yesterday, he really had it coming. I mean, come on! The Chief Justice canâ??t take ten minutes to memorize the oath? It was too much. Not to mention, it was the perfect time to crack a joke. There are so many tedious things Barack and I had to do today, I know everyone appreciated me lightening the mood. Well, Jill wants to have dinner soon, so I guess weâ??re off for our first dinner with the White House chef! Until next time, Joe the Veep
