Get Your Dunkin Wednesday
Yesterday was difficult. The ceremony for my aunt's brother was honorable, full of happier times and included a beautiful send off. We gathered after the ceremony at a local pub where everyone celebrated his life "Irish" style with booze, food and love. It was the way he would have liked it. Today will be tricky, anytime you miss a day of work you come back into a mess and I feel like a mess. Funny story though. Today I got off at the Davis Purple line stop and right there greeting everyone was Rep. Jan Schakowsky. I shook her hand and thanked for the job she has been doing. I also invited her to tonight's Laughing Liberally, which everyone should attend as it Matt Filipowicz's birthday comedy show! 8pm Tonight at the No Exit Cafe. It's Free like FREEDOM!!
