10 Years Later, Cute Remembers

Ten years ago, me and Pimp were just waking up. We were living in Gainesville, Florida, and I was still in college. Pimp was only two years old.

The phone rang, which was strange for that hour. It was my mom telling me to turn on the TV.

I think that's how most people found out. Someone told them to turn on the TV.

And so I watched, glued, like everyone else. I think I may have gone into some kind of daze. I can't believe I don't remember more exact details about how I was feeling, the rest of my day or the days to come.

I know the football game that weekend was postponed. No way anyone was tailgaiting or celebrating. I'm sure classes were cancelled. I'm sure I went to work. I'm sure it was all we talked about.

I bought a 2-CD tribute set and listened to it basically on repeat. I don't know why.

Seems like there's a lot I don't know about that time. I can only imagine what it was like for people who were actually there and people who lost loved ones.

And so, today and every other day, we remember.


  1. Woof! Woof! 9/11 was a very tragic day and we will never forget it. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. While I don't remember (as I was not yet here), I shall never forget.

  3. We remember.  Love and purrs.

  4. Interestingly I too recount being in a bit of a haze in the days that followed...i remember snippets here and there but nothing in contineum.

  5. I was a little puppy here in NJ right across from NYC when it happened and I remember all the humans being sad and worrying about what might happen next...

  6. I was driving at the time. I got stuck in traffic and put the local news station on the radio, hoping for a traffic report. But instead, they broke in with live coverage of what they thought was an accidental crash of a light plane into the WTC. The live coverage of that was in progress when the second plane hit. I heard that live on the air. Then everyone knew it was intentional, not an accident. We didn't know the day's tragedies were only just beginning.

  7. We have all been affected, although some so much more than others. I was at work that day and our office closed and everyone went home . God Bless to all and may Peace reign thru our World!!!

  8. It was a terrible and sad day. We need to try to remember some of the good things like a lot of people did survive and a lot of people saved other people. 

  9. I was at work, and about 2 hours after the first plane went into the WTC we were all sent home. By "all" I mean every worker in the city. It was the only time I've ever been scared riding the subway.

    But I have to post on a lighter note that Pimp looks like he wants to shred you - "WHY has the human put this undignified decoration on my head?"

  10. Pimp looks a little angry with the terrorists.  

  11. I hope there is NEVER a repeat


You know what would be really cute? If you left a comment... :)
