Today we took a big Uber downtown for a long awaited court date. Needed room for 5 people: my parents, Michael, and my child. The occasion: to add legal heft to the name our child has chosen for themself.
It was a bit of an adventure with some suspense. Turns out the hearing was supposed to be via Zoom. One of Michael’s coworkers is a lawyer and she had offered to shephard us through. Thankfully we had built in a buffer and she lives two blocks away from the county building. We scampered to her apartment, reminiscing about the “I am not a cat” pandemic courtroom snafu, and logged on via her laptop just in time.
lots on my mind, most better for more private writing for now
