I think the lesson I’ve learned this morning is not to listen to the same version of a duet, to the exclusion of all others, 300+ times, or you’ll be ruined for any other interpretation.

confession: I can’t keep the meanings of “latter” and “former” straight in my mind

I can’t believe The Three Sillies isn’t in my “fairy tales I think about a lot” tag, because it’s a family in-joke - the man goes out looking for three people sillier than his fiancée because

So one evening she had gone down to draw the beer, and she happened to look up at the ceiling while she was drawing, and she saw a mallet stuck in one of the beams. It must have been there a long, long time, but somehow or other she had never noticed it before, and she began a-thinking. And she thought it was very dangerous to have that mallet there, for she said to herself: ‘Suppose him and me was to be married, and we was to have a son, and he was to grow up to be a man, and come down into the cellar to draw the beer, like as I’m doing now, and the mallet was to fall on his head and kill him, what a dreadful thing it would be!’ And she put down the candle and the jug, and sat herself down and began a-crying.

and then her parents join her. 

so whenever I’m going down the terrible path of “what-if,” I or my dad stops and says “wouldn’t that be sad?"

nominative: if you were choosing a new name, what would you pick? Well, I did just change my Facebook name to Theodora… 

(Theo for short!) 

ablative: what would you carry out of a burning building? look, this is probably millennial and terrible or whatever, but I’d take my laptop - it’s the most expensive thing I own and it holds a lot of stuff I don’t want to lose. 

imperfect: what is something you used to do regularly and miss? SWIM, oh my god, especially in a lake - I swam 3x a day daily at camp and I yearn to be one with the deep water again. pools aren’t the same and also there aren’t any easily accessible ones around here.
