“Notice of Availability of and Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration”

~ Title of a San Francisco Planning Department notice

Most of the mitigated negative declarations I’ve heard were uttered by women. There was Bridget in middle school who gave me a thumbs down for attractiveness but told me I still had nice eyes. There was a college girlfriend who dumped me, but only because she was so devoted to God. Then there was the stranger I asked out for a drink once. “No thanks,” she said, “but I admit that you have better-than-average grooming habits.”
