July 5, 2017… Day 167
I’m enjoying some kind of summer flu and am
delirious so this is going to be brief and will ignore all the crazy shit happening right now.
Last night there were so many fireworks all night long, and it felt hostile after awhile, like usual. This time though, I imagined it was people saying “Fuck you, Seattle liberals” at 2:00 am, 2:17 am, 3:38 am. I was also up a lot feeling sick, so I had time to look at Facebook in the middle of the night and see older local friends — in chemo, recovering from surgery — awake all night from the fireworks.
But then when I dragged myself into the office for a couple hours, a bonafide liberal-deriding Trump supporter who I work with was really sweet about me being sick and said that he was in bed by 9 pm, snuggling with his dogs to comfort them through the long night of fireworks.
