My plan today was to go to the gym, meet a friend to see Three Billboards, and be home in time to watch Stormy Daniels on 60 Minutes. But my friend was still not over her flu.
Plan B was to go to the gym, then see a different movie, Claire’s Camera. But finishing up a freelance project too more time than expected.
On to Plan C: walk from 112th Street to 96th to the subway, see Claire’s Camera, and return home for 60 Minutes.
Claire’s Camera was just over an hour, much shorter than I expected. So Plan C got an addendum: I was still able to go to the gym after the movie. And once home, I discovered that 60 Minutes would be delayed because the NCAA final eight were still playing. Kansas (my husband’s home state) was just a point behind Duke shortly before 7, so I rooted on his behalf, and Kansas pulled out an 85-81 overtime win. And I watched Stormy Daniels, who I mostly believe. Plus reading this profile of her in the New York Times today.
