Today a terrible thing happened to me when I was at a teacher inservice. My personhood was disregarded.
The “automatic” faucet, pictured above, failed to recognize that I am a human being too. I put my hand near the sensor and… nothing. Not even a drip to validate my existence. Sink faucet, I am a person! A person whose hands need washing after using a public urinal!
Or maybe I’m dead and this was a moment of foreshadowing like in the movie The Sixth Sense.
