How’s everyone doing tonight? It’s great to be here at The Chuckle Patch, D.C.’s second funniest place after Kevin McCarthy’s leadership training sessions.
I’m the Equal Rights Amendment. Maybe you’ve heard of me — I used to be splashed across magazine covers and the chests of empowered, braless women across the country. I was the life of both parties. I couldn’t walk down a congressional aisle without someone trying to ratify me, if you know what I mean.
Announcement: I’ve unlocked a new parenting level. Without my cajoling, my kids have shared and taken turns.
Sadly, it’s with the flu.
One was home from school all last week with one of those terrible, turn-of-the-century dry hacking coughs, body aches, and low fever. No medicines alleviated his symptoms. He couldn’t sleep at night because of the severity of the cough.
I’m very excited to announce that Nevertheless We Persisted is a finalist for a 2018 Audie (the audiobook equivalent of an Oscar or a Grammy.) I am a proud contributor to this amazing compilation of stories and poems. Special thanks and congratulations to Blunder Woman Productions for their hard work on this labor of love.

The awards will be announced on May 31, 2018. I’ll keep you posted.
