Having just enjoyed a fun afternoon yesterday of being screamed at by my mother-in-law, I can so relate to almost ALL of this, as I am experiencing it right now. The only part I can't relate to is not being able to yell myself, because I DEFINITELY can let loose. If I'd drawn this, I would have also added a panel where you feel humiliated and wonder if everybody else in the world is been thinking of you as a shitty human being.
But yeah, feeling that mix of intense indignation and guilt? Totally there with you right now. :/
@wee_ramekin Being born in the caul means you are born with your amniotic sac still intact. Most of the time, the amniotic sac ruptures at some point during labor (i.e., your "water breaking"), but sometimes (rarely), it doesn't. And yes, those babies have The Sight, obvs.
Nobody's gonna comment on the fact that the guy in the first paragraph is named "Yoni?" That was my first guffaw moment. Yoni!
@Ophelia: My ancestors on my father's side are all Anabaptists of one stripe or another (mostly Old Order Mennonite), and, like the Amish, they marry inside the faith. Soooooo, LOTS of interfamily relationships. My dad is actually also my cousin. I made sure I married far, far out of the family tree.
Sooooo.... am I really going to be the first to comment on those awesome booty popping videos that Molly posted? Holy frack -- those butts! So hypnotizing. I can't stop watching!
@parallel-lines Of course I googled it. Of course.
@leon.saintjean I did this when greeting a friend in the airport who I hadn't seen in 10 years. But otherwise, nah, I don't do it.
@fullofgrace I grew up there. So much word. Timberville, however, is even worse -- mmmm, chicken rendering aroma.
@Probs What, an Applebee's PLUS a Long John Silver's PLUS two Walmarts isn't enough to get your engine cranking?
@Cawendaw This whole thread has me in stitches.
