You CAN fight at City Hall!

It’s 11:30 pm, I just walked in the door, our issue was the last of the evening, every single member of the city council had to speechify and boy could some of them speechify, and my stars, it just went on and on and on.

And it was worth every minute it took–we literally stood up for ourselves and demanded, visually at least, to be counted. There were a lot of us.

I turned to the neighbors who’d been sitting next to me as dozens of us streamed out the doors at the end and said, “There are some times in my life where I really really hate being deaf. Usually I can handle it. This was one of them”–and I thanked them for filling me in at a few key spots.

I went in totally expecting our side to lose. The voting was unanimous.  We won!

More later. I’m still not over this cold. Time to go crash.

Inquiring minds want to know, but inquiring minds also want you to get some rest and get over that cold!

Good news for the win — whatever it was. As for the cold, looks like you need some more Bug Killer. On the way shortly.

It must have been important for you to fight the cold and city hall simultaneously. I’m glad you won – and that you are home resting now!
