I’m no ‘snowflake,’ but I now have a safe space nonetheless

I just finished building a little 8-by-10 addition to a shed at my home. It sits atop the hill that slopes downward from my house. It’s fairly open with a tin roof and a bar overlooking the woods and creek below. As a huge Parrothead (that’s a Jimmy Buffett fan for you uncultured folks), naturally I refer to this place as Margaritahill.
