Hockey Heart

Thoughts are of Elgin-Alexander Fraser this morning.

Pete and RePete

Omar: Goofing around on his chair, hurts his toe. (no visible wound, LOTS of tears and after I told him to stop goofing around on his chair, so any compassion is minimal to say the least)

Me: Oh-Oh. Do we need to cut off your toes?

Omar: NO!

Me: But why not, if your toes are what are hurting you, then we should cut them off.

Omar: No. That will hurt more!

Me: Hurt more!?

Omar: Yeah, cutting my toes off will hurt more.

Me: But I thought it was your toes that were hurting you. If we cut them off, won't the pain stop?

Omar: No! And then I won't have any toes.


Boy I hated when my parents would do this to me: "YUP. I think she needs to go to the hospital..." ... How, oh how could I not resist? Have I become my parents?! Is there some twisted satisfaction doing to your children the things that frustrated you the most? Parents out there, I ask you, have you repeated a parental pattern that you never thought you'd repeat?

LGS - What I KNOW about you now...

Some men gottem', some men don't.

When I prompted Lone Grey Squirrel with this: 'I would be interested to know your interpretation of the song and when you write: "...seem to carry a message at several different levels.." are you able to elabourate on this?'

Well I can assure you, he's gottem.

I will add that for very personal reasons right now, which I will not go into, to see a man displaying courage, is just what I needed to see. If even to know that it IS indeed possible.
