Sorry for the delay, folks. I'm hoping to announce our first in-person meet-up soon (to be held in the newly opened cafe at the Library for the Performing Arts!). In the meantime though, book-writer John Weidman has a fantastic prompt for the week's challenge:
Ho Chi Minh, a busboy at the Ritz Hotel in Paris in 1919, has applied for credentials to represent the Vietnamese people at the Paris Peace Conference. Waiting in an antechamber at Versailles, he rehearses how best to present himself before the committee which will rule on his request.
