Friday night I fell asleep watching the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics and I missed the US athletes entrance into the stadium. I was soooo bummed.
Yesterday while chatting with my sister about the ceremonies, I told her I fell asleep and asked her about it.
me: Did you see USA walk in?
me: Did they get a good reception from the audience?
her: Yes, they did. It was amazing!
me: I saw a pic of their outfits. They looked really sharp.
her: They were, everyone looked great.
me: So how many athletes were there?
her: I think they said about 11,000.
me: WHAT?!?! NO WAY!!!
her: Yeah there were.
me: 11,000 ATHLETES!?!? THAT'S INSANE!! It must have taken them FOREVER to walk in!!
her: Oh it did. That part lasted hours.
me: Wait a second, it took HOURS for the USA athletes to walk in!?!
(at this point her husband has heard the entire exchange and is shaking his head)
her: OH!!!! You meant JUST the USA athletes??? Ohhhhh. In that case there were about 500 or so.
Finally her husband chimes in:
him: Are you two related????
