I’m currently blogging from a very comfortable men’s only section of the City Union, here at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
It is very comfortable because of the fireplace, which is the focus of the room. A merry wreath sits above it in the middle of a grad facade. A chanedlier and lifty lamps complete the exterior, with a pendulum clock and wifi completing the feeling.
It’s men only, out of safety if not dictate, because of UNL’s policy of welcoming the homeless (thus, often, the deranged) on campus. The one-sided conversation between one of the gents and his imaginary partner would be interesting if it was audible or coherent. His very real companions do not seem to mind.
After all, it’s a very comfortable (if exclusively male) section of the City Union, here at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
