Text: LMAO! I just snorted. You could have told him I am very entertained by your crotch. It provides some of my favorite leisure time activity!
You have OBVIOUSLY never engaged a professor of law in conversation. Its bad enough that I withdrew my attention from him, but sassing? These dudes won’t stand for it. It did make me chuckle, though.
Joe: Sorry it took me so long to reply, but when I initially got the message, my professor announced, and I quote, “Either you’re entertaining on your cellular phone or you have the an amusing crotch, and I know that one of those things can’t be true.” So…
On the statue:
September 30, 2014
Happy 25th Anniversary, Mo and D
As this statue stands in your garden, that I have watched grow and flourish, be harvested, wither, and replanted and repeat the cycle all over again throughout the years; its my biggest wish that the to of you continue to do the same, as you always have.
Joe and Lauren
On the card:
Whatever you two decide to do, know that my prayers will be with you. I know that I’ve told you before, but I think its worth mentioning again, especially at this time of year that I really am proud and grateful that I was raised by the two of you. I’ve come across so many people who don’t have the luxury that I had of having loving parents in a loving marriage and I’m extremely glad that even though our family isn’t perfect that I was always able to kinda feel like it was. You two are steady constants of positivity and light in my life. You’ve helped me and Lauren to build upon our love and to help build each other up, even though both of us can attest to the fact that we still falter - its fortunate that we have a beacon like y’all to help us to see where we fall short (even if we see it later rather than sooner.) I love y’all. We both do and we wish you a happy anniversary. And a happy early birthday to you D.
But why environmental? Wait, what exactly is environmental law? Cuz it sounds like you’d sue trees.
Well, you have to take a hoard of different law classes before the degree and I’ve mostly taken a lot of civil rights and human rights, family law, etc, but environmental law has to be taken, as well. Lol… That’s an image that I had not yet thought of. Its all the treaties, statutes, regulations and common and customary laws addressing the effects of human activity on the natural environment.
I could tell, but I guess you’re right. I think he’s just really interested and wants to bring it up but doesn’t know how. I’ll just wait on him. Environmental law books? I thought you were in social work?
It’d be cool for him to get some insight on it, so he tries not to be prejudiced. Oh, I am. I’m in a double degree social work and law program, but its all for social work purposes. Social workers deal with a lot of legal stuff and many times have to consult lawyers or have a legal department within their agency. This will help me out in the long run with legal matters for any clients I assist.
Real philosophical shit, bro. Yeah, today was pretty good. I’m kinda learning everything - I’m not really sure how good of a salesman I’ll be, but it’s not like people come into a store that sells fish tanks and shit to browse.
My inner hippy speaking. Sounds like interesting stuff to learn. Meanwhile, I’m dissecting environmental law books, which is not as fascinating as it felt when I first signed up for the courses. But, I did need them, so eh.
This is the fish tank job. Puppies don’t really care about fancy scars. I dunno, I think he’ll stop looking at me funny in a few days when he figures out that I didn’t go through the entire interview process to rob him.
Ah, well, that’s good, then. And maybe through you, he’ll have a chance to learn that the human is inside and not on the outside. Aside from that, work going well?
crossnmyhart replied to your post:That moment when your boss sees your body mods for…Hopefully, he’ll get over it. How did it happen?
I took my break in the alley next to the shop and I got hot and took off my hoodie. He saw my arms and I’m pretty sure he thinks I got my scarification from a sharpened spoon-edge during a brief stint in a state penitentiary.
Aw, that sucks. Its hard to convince people of who you are and what you can do when they start forming unjustified opinions. Which job is this?
I am, as a matter of fact
Wear dancing shoes. I’m coming for ya, to cash in that dance you offered.
