| It had taken way longer than she’d wanted it to. The LGBT+ flag that incorporated colors for the struggles faced by the trans, black and brown members of the community had been back-ordered and had taken forever to come in. Which was understandable since it was a special order near the holidays but it was still frustrating as she’d wanted the flags up over a month ago but life was life. |
That was why Dante was spending part of her morning outside her mechanics shop across from the diner standing on a ladder with a small handheld power drill in one hand. The black metal adjustable flagpole holders had been stashed in her work coveralls pockets. It was easy to ‘eyeball’ the most accurate and most aligned spots through equations and calculations quickly run through her head. It was amazing what one could do with a little geometry and a whole lot of brainpower. Two of the flagpole holders would be set higher and the third set lower for the time being. With the holders bolted appropriately into the building Dante would make short work of fetching up and hanging the lgbt+ flag, Mexican flag and Spanish flag. The two flags connected to origin countries would be hung in the higher holders while the lgbt+ was stationed in the lower holder as not to be overshadowed or covered up by the country flags.
“Woo!” Would be the exhale of relief and triumph as Dante hopped off the ladder, skipping the last few rungs intentionally and landing with a soft ‘thump’ before she’d look up to grin upon her handiwork.
