"Speechless" is a once-a-month event at Public Works near 14th and Mission, by the people who put on "Mortified." It involves people improvising a PowerPoint presentation based on slides they’ve never seen, on a topic chosen by the audience. Of course, quality depends on the performers each time, but I thought it was pretty entertaining.

I’m learning to accept that I’ve been experiencing seasonal allergies for the past few weeks, even though I’ve lived here for decades and have never had allergies in my life. Global warming, maybe? I have no idea.
