Our lovely thriving metropolis of Raleigh is being graced by The President's presence today. He is here to spread the word of his health care plan. I am not here to get on my soap box as a state employee and how all these pay cuts and firings and hiring freezes suck, BUT I am here to hopefully make a few of you chuckle. There is a saying in Raleighwood, about being "ITB". This, otherwise known as "inside the beltline", is the distinction between all that is good in the world, and all that is not. To be OUTSIDE the beltline, well, we won't discuss that in detail, but let's just say you know when you're OTB. To be ITB is to be above the rest. To be what people strive to be and have. (SOO joking by the way... but not really....you'll never know). Obviously, this is something that is taken above and beyond and to heart by many to a level that is just ridiculous. And yes, there are ITB round stickers for your car. BitP and I were talking the other day about how we could live in this bubble, how we could live ITB, and never have to leave. There is nothing you can not get within the beltline, or not be able to get online. Try me, we wracked our brains. If you can think of something, I shall be impressed. Anywhoo, back to the point. Many within the beltline, shall I say, may not be the biggest supporters of our new president (such a stereotype I know), but many are greatly interested to see him in person and hear him speak on his plan. Well, he was messing up my world as I really needed to get to Cameron Village to do some shopping, but he was speaking at Broughton Highschool which is within a half mile of CV. Not needing to spend 2 hours trying to find a parking spot or have dogs sniff for bombs in my car, I decided to just forgo and try again tomorrow. A friend of mine, who works very close to CV got to see the limo parade by his office window this morning... I shortly received this text from him:
he is SO not ITB.
PS: I obviously live ITB ;-)
