Now, that morning I had been given the gift of a lifetime. Something I had been begging for. Simply the coolest thing EVER! You guessed it, it was a white digital watch with red LCD (or whatever it was back then) lines that created the numbers. It was the coolest...I was the bees knees!
So, when it was time for the eclipse, the entire school went out to the parking lot, each child holding a something we'd created to view it safely, probably the pin hole in paper method. I don't recall exactly as I was quite and justifiably distracted. The moon started to pass in front of the sun, everyone gazed at the awesomeness their paper viewers beheld. "Ooooh! Aaaaaah!"
Ya, me? Well, I could tell you what time it happened, that's useful info, right?
