I’ve previously said that I really have no interest in William and Kate. Aside from a few photos I happened to see in passing, I really have no idea what they’re wedding was like. And I’m not going anywhere near Parliament Hill for their Canada Day visit tomorrow.
But here’s the thing. Today at 2:30 they’re visiting the War Memorial en Route to the Governor General’s house. The Memorial is actually just outside my office door. Literally, it’s across the street from where I work.
Now, I’m not foolish enough to think that I could get close (even if I wanted to). As of 9 a.m. today, there are already people starting to gather in wait. The likelihood that I could just pop out for a few minutes to catch a glimpse seems slim.
But the company that shares the floor of our building does have a 7th floor view of the memorial. I COULD conceivably walk down the hall to their office where I’m sure people will gather to gawk.
I’m not saying I won’t do it – but if I do, it won’t be because I care about the royals. It will be because I feel like taking a break from my work and sharing an experience with my colleagues.
