And Who Will Wait for Me When The Sun Rises Over Foreign Shores?…
Never Forget… (ssssshhhh…)
We have learned that by demanding decent housing we make enemies, and that by occupying land we make those enemies even more ruthless. But we cannot wait in the mud, shit and fire of shack life for ever. Voting did not work for us. The political parties did not work for us. Civil society did not work for us. No political party, civil society organisation or trade union is inviting us into the cities or into what remains of democracy in South Africa. We have no choice but to take our own place in the cities and in the political life of the country.–

Ladies and GentleMan, I give Thee…
I was tired. It was Monday, our typical day for doing house at our respective apartments.
My roommate was telling me, Go to the Chinese Laundry around the corner. It’s the best decision I’ve made in the last two years. They even fold your socks.
And I remember it’s not the first time he’s telling me this. I remember it from a few months ago, from another Monday night. I remember it because I was equally tired then, again, after another long day of skilled labor that, despite being done in bits and bytes, is still back-breaking, still toxic, and you still make what you can of it just to survive.
Not saying I’d trade my lot for a coal miner. Too many of them still. I’m all for raising the minimum wage, but that’s a different conversation.
In that conversation we pull energy out of the equation, and make it a basic human right. In that conversation, greed is more easily conquered, less easily spread. In that conversation, we care about the greater good and not just the bottom line. In that conversation, I know my neighbor instead of thinking of them as the annoyance just beyond my thin walls.
My roommate was telling me. Go with the Chinese Laundry Option. And yet I worried that the Chinese Laundry Option was a bit too much like the Nuclear Option, and I knew how much I loved my nice, new soft wool sweaters purchased at the slightly more upscale than goodwill but, read here: affordable and time-saving as far as shopping for clothes I would actually want to wear as a thirty year old, boutique.
And, for me, the CHINESE OPTION equalled the NUCLEAR OPTION which equalled the HOT WASH / HIGH DRY option.
So I went to the crackhead laundromat around the block like always, and washed them myself, and listened to my music loud on my headphones to drown out the sound of the bad comedians.
And I reminded myself I got options galore…
