I still remember 11/9

I still remember where I was when I found out Trump was elected President. Our dog, Ace, was pacing in the kitchen trying to tell someone he had to pee. By the time I got out of bed he had already peed on the floor, so I cleaned it up. Then, with a pee soaked towel in one hand, I opened my laptop. I refreshed the New York Times electoral map. Acid formed in my gut. I tried to go back to sleep. Stress and fear are tiring so I eventually nodded off until about 4 am.

Where were you?
