    (David nails me every time) This little boy is like me–a literalist and perplexed always by the discrepancy between the letter and the spirit, know what I mean. He’ll probably grow up to be a fundamentalist–unless he can leave off his childish ways. Funny in one sense. Pathetic in another. Ah, the humanity. I’m a dead man walking.

  2. I’m impressed with the kid’s grasp of the proper use of neither and nor. He’s got to be Canadian!

  3. Gotta love the 1928 Book of Common Prayer!

  4. I wonder if the ‘judgement’ is the sudden jolt into ‘awareness’ that comes as a shock after a lifetime of sleepwalking. More like a revealing than a penal sentence.

    Absolutely. Judgement is realisation.

    My favourite line from the Book of Common Prayer! Admittedly, I do try to avoid the BCP.
