*ring ring, ring ring*
Friend: Hey, are you watching ABC World News with Diane Sawyer? They just showed a picture of Payton!
Me: Huh? Are you sure?
Friend: Yes ... I am sure! It was that picture of her when she was a baby ... she had on a white tank top and she was sticking her tongue out.
Me: Are you serious?! What were they talking about?
Friend: They were talking about the R word.
We continued to talk ... all the while I remained a skeptic. I mean really ... wouldn't I know if my daughter's picture was going to be shown on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer?
Ha ... apparently not!
I turned to facebook and asked if anyone had seen the segment.
Aww ... my baby was on the world news and I missed it! Thank God for the internet!
The ABC World News segment is a direct result of Obama's Chief of Staff referring to something as being "F'ing R____" ... thus the backlash. The View also discussed the use of the R word earlier that day.
Payton's picture was a clip from the ARC RESPECT PSA that was made back when Tropic Thunder came out. I also sort of forgot that the PSA is on every Tropic Thunder DVD ... pretty awesome.
To say we are proud is an understatement!
Changing lives ... one day at a time.
