That is so awesome, and you still write about it so well. Nia turned seven yesterday and so I have a very clear image of what seven years looks like right now, and just wow. That's a lot of time!

I was fully prepared to make an inappropriate joke about how after seven years comes Jubilee and your past debts are now forgiven, which I think means you're probably okay to start drinking again, or something. But then I looked up Leviticus 25 and I see that the Biblical literalists who taught me Sunday school failed pretty egregiously at basic reading comprehension:

Count off seven sabbath years--seven times seven years--so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period of forty-nine years. Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.

I swear, I was taught that Jubilee came every seven years. Illiterate fuckers. So, anyway, I guess you have 43 more years before I can make an inapproropriate joke about how your past debts are forgiven, which means you're probably okay to start drinking again, or something.

Do you ever pronounce heroin as "HERR-oyn?" I do sometimes, because it amuses me.

Congratulations! I am afraid of drugs because my family is crazy enough.

Also, the eternal return is a myth now? No one tells me anything.

Yayyy seven years. We should all chip in and buy Alameida a desk set made of copper, brass, and wool.

Oh, wait, that's for wedding anniversaries. Close enough, right?

Seriously, though, that's awesome, Al. Way to go.

I know. They did make me look to be sure Paul wasn't quoting Peter, even though that seemed very unlikely.

What? You want me to be able to tell Peter from Paul? What's next? You'll expect me to tell you the difference between a Catholic and a Protestant? A goy is a goy!

He lived at home until he was thirty and his mother was convinced he was God.

Now I feel old. I remember you writing about going into treatment (and doing translations from Greek as a way to occupy yourself and keep busy) and that, at the time, it felt like I'd been reading unfogged for a while.
