I remember like it was yesterday. It had snowed the night before, schools were closed.

Kids were really mean the next day. So many jokes regarding the incident.

I was at work and heard it on the radio. It was unbelievable.

Was in class, back when I had some. They rolled a TV in and we watched quietly in sadness.

I was at my mom's refurbishing her kitchen after a small fire. Took a break to watch the launch, didn't get a whole lot done after that...

I was at AU in the library checking out some chick, oops I mean books.
They had the accident on TVs all over campus and everyone was in a surreal mode.

You still are "aloof" (by your definition).
