May 7, 2017… Day 108
Today, while on a pleasant walk with two old friends from home who were chattering across me about kids and child care and distribution of household chores, one of them pulled out her phone and said “It’s Macron by a landslide.” We hadn’t even talked about the French presidential election. We would NEVER previously have talked about the French presidential election. I wouldn’t have, and I am several times more political and more of a news junkie than my friends. But this is who we are now. Dialed in.
And thank god Macron won.
