Yesterday, I got a Christmas package from L. A little something for everything; something to feel, something to taste, something to see… Very, very cool. It included some elements that my wife can enjoy, as well.

Going to be a busy couple of weeks. My parents will be visiting for Christmas, as will our friends Thumper and Sara. We’ll likely be seeing the secondary girlfriend for some part of the upcoming week, as well. At least this time we don’t have to hide the whips and chains or otherwise “parent-proof” the house!

I won’t say that my parents have always been perfect or flawless, or that they have in all things been without error of any kind. But I am thankful that I’ve never had to conceal anything from them.

Maybe that has made me impatient with people who have families that are not so understanding. I deeply resent having to go through the house whenever my wife’s parents are in town, hiding anything that might disturb them; and I think it’s unfortunate we can’t really be who we are in front of them. But then, it’s an imperfect world.
