Re: Gotta Take It

Was the punch for the resemblance, or because the puncher mistook the punchee for Shia? (I will now read the article.)

If it is wrong to hit somebody for being Shia LaBeouf, it is wrong to hit somebody just for looking like Shia LaBeouf. Even if it is right to hit somebody for being Shia LaBeouf, it is wrong to hit somebody for looking like Shia LaBeouf. If it is right to hit somebody for being Shia LaBeouf, it may or may not be wrong to hit somebody who you mistakenly thing is Shia LaBeouf, but probably is because you have to exercise some care.

Zamzam is by far the bigger of the two and had gotten the bulk of the maternal affection. No sex known yet and I'm mostly using "it" because there's no preferred pronoun expressed either.

(Zamzam is a pseud but also what I'm calling the kitten in real life. Obviously it invites the evil eye, but the church I take the girls to is of the name-and-claim sort, so I'm fine with asking for miracles. Selah chose the real name pre-birth.)

Chris, it's about culture and having them grow up so that it's unremarkable rather than batshit to see people speaking in tongues, even if they do indeed then decide it's batshit/put-on. It's the only place in their lives where other black kids with queer parents are in the majority, where most of the other families have been broken up and reconstituted because of drugs and absent parents and foster care and poverty. It really does create a shared language with their families that could be important down the line and has been helpful for me. Plus I was raised Catholic and so doing things that really bother me but are arguably for a good cause is up my alley. And the girls are supposed to be quiet, which is nice, and during the sermons I can translate the Greek for the verses they're using and complain in my head about the wordings they prefer. So much amateur ethnography to do. And the people there are genuinely nice and good people. I push the boundaries of the world they know as well as vice versa.

Son: When are we going to eat? I'm starving!

Dad: When we're done.

Son: Why do we do all this anyway?

Dad: I want you to learn about religion.

Son: I hate religion!

Dad: You're learning!

You should give them a bunch of sample questions to work on, all of which prominently feature Satan.

Right, but the point is to prove I'm morally better than they are. (Which is an amazingly low bar, but whatever.)

Again with the fucking unattended baggage in this airport. They should call out EOD on some of these fuckers. Maybe if people start losing their bags because of their idiocy this will stop.

So take one. They're all full of single malt and falcons, right?

If you steal the single malt first you could use that and pee too. Win-win-win.

Zamzam seems healthy and happy. I'm about ready to pass out from fear of how I'd deal with a repeat of yesterday, but I'll get better after managing dinner and homework and going to the park and so on.
