OH MY GOD, Robert, you’re prescient.
I did, in fact, lose my sense of humor along with the election. I was walking somewhere on November 8th, and in my shock — and a wave of intense nausea — I dropped it.
I haven’t been able to find it since, and I’m praying I don’t have to wait until the next election to recover it.
If you see it, maybe you can send it back. It’s gray, has whiskers, and looks a bit like a schnauzer.
Thanks Robert! Hope you’ll keep reading despite my mislaid humor.
