I’ve waited two years to write this story.
Small aside here: this was not a courageous decision. Calling this courageous would be inferring that the opposite decision, and those who make it, are weak. And that isn’t true. It’s just the decision your brain is able to make at the time.
I got lucky. My brain pulled one out of the hat. Other people’s brains go the other way. They’re no less courageous or weak.
