And by "boycotting" I mean that I haven't been in New York or Chicago, and they haven't launched a national tour yet - and even if I were in those places, I wouldn't be able to get tickets.
But that doesn't stop this from being any less of a boycott.
I feel very strongly, much like our President-elect, that we need more safe spaces for people, so they aren't harassed.
So please - if you have them - please send me all of your Hamilton tickets. I will keep them safe and *help you* boycott this awful show. See how nice I am? I will HELP YOU out by making sure you accidentally don't end up going to see Hamilton, or feel the peer pressure from people to break off your principled boycott and be dragged into the theatre.
If I have your tickets, then you can stand proud. If I don't, then who knows what horrible things could happen.
Think of yourselves and your values. Think of the children growing up in a world where Hamilton exists - and do the right thing by sending me your tickets!
And because that's "politics adjacent" (and seriously, this is your space, I'm going to keep reminding people of that because I want to make sure the Newbies get it into their head, and that the veterans who haven't been around in awhile remember) let's always make sure to have things that aren't. Such as opening up the floor with - What are you up to this weekend?
Anything fun planned? Anything not so fun?
My bonus daughter's paternal grandfather died a couple days ago, so the end of this week has been filled with a lot of talking about that, and dealing with death.
Speaking of - losing SHARON JONES yesterday? It popped up on my FB feed and just slammed me in the heart.
2016, you can leave any time you like. Not sure what 2017 has in store, but let's all hope it's better.
