I was the Town Clerk for the Town of Woodstock from 1997-2005. When Jeff mentioned an interest in running for Mayor last year, I told him that he had no idea of what he was getting into.
Well, neither did I, apparently. He took office in November 2016 and I came home to interview with Brian Reed in December. I really didn’t know what a podcast was. I do now.
I had worked 11 hours that day and then came home and talked 3 or 4 more. After Brian left the house, I still remember my famous last words, “What’s it matter, nobody is going to listen anyway”.
Jeff predicted later that night that he was the Mayor of S-Town and I was the star. I absolutely panicked when I saw the preview this March. I did not know what I had participated in.
It took me a week to get through it, my heart was so heavy. My life was described beautifully, others I love, were not edited so kindly. Guilt and remorse still linger. I wish I would have said more, I have a problem with wanting to fix things.
Thirty days later, this is my way of coping. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis, maybe menopause, but I am betting on just plain crazy. You know it runs in the family.
