Calm before the storm
Since it's over a week later, I don't remember details of the rest of the weekend before premiere week. Aren't you lucky!
I do remember a little vignette from the bus. I was riding up CPW when an entering passenger recognized the woman behind me. Eavesdropping, I learned one woman had been the nurse of the other woman's grandson. I soon gathered that the boy was 3 at the time, and is now 22! He was hospitalized for quite a while as a toddler, and this nurse provided care at home afterward. The boy is now fine.
