I couldn’t BE a skylight at the very TOP of a building. I have to be a skylight below a massive, looming cupola. Every time damaging winds are predicted, I have to worry about that thing crashing through me. After the near miss by the tornado last week, I’ve had to go on anti-anxiety meds. What stupid use is a cupola anyway? It’s like a hood ornament on a car, although I doubt any car has ever lived in constant fear of the hood ornament falling off. You tell me how I’m supposed to relax.
