I thoroughly enjoyed this read.
My problem is that, at some point, my inner hippie tells my inner fascist to STFU, as he’s not as passive as he once was. Then they get in a shouting match and I have to leave the room.
Also, loved the Shonda Rhimes reference. In my 64 years of watching television, there have been about four times when I thought to myself, “Who wrote this?” The first episode of Grey’s Anatomy was one of those times. Love her dialog.
