Yesterday I had to attend a meeting of various agency people where we each had input as to where the issue should hence go forward. One of the persons is an attorney representing one of the other participants.
In the past this attorney has been very stern, very protective of his client, very suspicious of my inputs.
Yesterday, knowing I had chemo, and seeing me present myself with a scarf on my head and eyebrows drawn on by hand (not crookedly, I hope), he was a much more kindly and pleasant in our interactions. He even nodded his head in full agreement with one of my spoken concerns.
We have to appear in court on this issue in three weeks. I'm considering going bald. I'm thinking the "startle factor" might cause my words to be heard more carefully by all.
(You do know that I am being facetious, don't you? I don't think I have the guts. )
