I’ve had the flu — apologies to people who had posts pending that took me too long to get up.
Even with the flu, I had to go to have a drink at a friend’s birthday party. I loaded up on advil cold and sinus and headed to perhpas my new favorite place in Evanston. Over a drink, I finally got it (something). I was talking with a dear friend who is I am guessing early 50s and is a woman. Not learning my lesson from last week, I again lamented Hillary’s inability to count and this woman who I respect tremendously said, “When you have been in professional life as long as I have, you will experience being well-trained and well-qualified with the experience to do a job well, and some MAN will come out of nowhere with none of that and get the job you deserve.” (May not be an exact quote, but it is close).
All of a sudden I got the Hillary supporters’ point in a new way. Especially the women of my friend’s generation (which is what she said: women of MY generation have had the expereince . . . )
