My friend had a “make Greek food and cheer everyone up” dinner at her house. We bitched about politics but it was very healing to be in the presence of angry/sad friends. The collective grief helped me. If you’re like me and have an instinct to hole up in your house until 2020, I suggest trying out a little social time (if that’s a thing you’d normally want to do).

We had all kinds of amazing ideas, like befriending John Hinckley (Reagan’s attempted assassin) who was released in September with amazing timing, wearing vagina costumes to the inauguration, and hugging.
