If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Wow! It's like Presbytera Lori and our 4 kids are in my office with me right now!  :D

What a riot!  Of course, it doesn't address many parts of growing up in a Greek household, and hearing phrases like (I'll put them in their translated form - it's much funnier that way) "you want to eat wood?" (i.e. a spanking) and "you dumb eggplant!"

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

LOL!  Lord have mercy!  I heard every one of those admonishments growin' up but the one's that scared me the most were 'Wait til your daddy gits home." and "I'm grabbin' a switch (a small but unbreakable, flexible branch from a Hickory tree capable of reaching long distances), boy!"  :D  Thanks for bringing up traumatic childhood memories, Ozgeorge. :laugh: :laugh:

"I will change your lightbulbs",  "I will burn you", "I will eat you", "I will (poo) you" and the dreaded koutala and pantdofla.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Oh, the switch.  My mom used forsythia branches... yeow!  The branch grows around 3-4 feet long and no thicker than a finger.
