Party / Library of Congress

At parties I have become very good at concealing my stroke. It's not because I want to hide it, but I don't want to explain it in the middle of a party.  Hiding it is not so hard. For one, everyone is standing around tipsy, not moving much. Also, if I’m talking to you and I lock eyes with yours, Western norms dictate that you will not look down if I don’t. You will not see my hand.
