can’t(?) CAN(!) do
Calliope twitched, scratched, and wiggled in her chair. “This solicitation is… I think it’s… too much. We don’t want… to be a bother.”
“Invitation!” Urania corrected.
“A podcast?” Cal squeaked. “What if somebody says ‘yes’?”
“Oh! More than one somebody is going to say ‘yes’ — I’m shhhhherrrr of it!” Confidence flowed from Thalia like sap from a tapped spring maple. Surveying a tabletop of mindful creations, she added, “Cal — We must do the things we think we cannot do! And Nia — You have done an amazing job of designing invitations that are respectful of our caregivers time and energy!”
It isn’t just talent.
You have to have something else.
You have to have a kind of nerve.

Typist wonders… Why is Calliope making up a story of bothering when the reality might be — caregivers will feel seen, heard, and grateful to be asked?
I'm so excited about this new venture, Gail!! Will the focus be on caregiving, starting with your specific caregivers? I'm sure they'll have lots to say and will appreciate the outlet in which to express it. Yay you!
