BREMERTON — I walk into a room in the Kitsap Conference Center called Glacier Cove 2 with my friend Wade. It’s 9 a.m. on a Thursday and I’m a little groggy from the night before. Wade lives in Cle Elum. We don’t see each other often so we had a few beers and played pool with a group of lesbians at A & C Sports Bar. We won on a technicality. Glacier Cove is a strange place. About a dozen people do about dozen things. There’s a pair of sailors in blue coveralls with pale faces and dark red circles around their eyes. They look strung-out. There’s a nurse in blue scrubs. She looks healthy. There’s man with blue skin wearing dusty, black wingtip shoes, tight red pants and a black dress shirt. He looks dead. Or at least half dead.
