WHEN REFERRING TO A DEITY, DO I HAVE TO CAPITALIZE “YOU” AND “YOUR”
Short answer is “it depends”.
Sometimes I do. Most times i don’t. Sometimes I don’t even capitalize their actual names because I’m lazy.
Do you feel more comfortable doing it, or not doing it? Does the deity in question give you any feels one way or the other?
Usually what happens is this: go and do the non capitalization for said deity. If by chance you feel like there’s a stern someone glaring over your shoulder, basically burning a hole into you with disappointment, then just remember to capitalize next time.
this guy just ran down my street yelling “fuck it! fuck this! fuck you guys!” and i don’t know what caused it for him personally but i kind of want to join him
When people were in serious trouble they went to a witch.*
* Sometimes, of course, to say, “please stop doing it.
this is my new favorite video
Hercules reads his script entirely wrong
(reads the word disappointed, when he was supposed to sound disappointed)
New favorite thing to say when disappointed.
I shout this all the time and I am only 70% sure people understand the reference
I know it bothers the hubby, but our teen son prefers to tell me things. And, apparently, so do his friends (and also throwing in the kids I work with at the ballpark). It’s strange, they feel the comfy vibe around me, and will tell me things that are affecting their lives that they don’t have the comfort level in other adults. For example, Son’s friend [redacted for privacy] didn’t even tell my son that his parents are going through a divorce, but he told me, and how things are so hectic, etc. So when talking with hubby later on, he jokingly called me the Teen Whisperer.
And in spite of his grumpiness, the son will curl up next to me to watch all the latest Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter videos—mostly because I was the one who introduced him to this awesomeness. And then we will chat a bit while cackling to the Animated Adventures.And all the while, hubby kind of gives a look over to us, and I would ask him if he wants to watch this with us, but declines because the cursing was bothersome to him….*.sigh*
Hubby feels left out…dear man, I love you. You helped me to bring these two beautiful children into this world. But I happen to be on the same wavelength with them, due to some odd thing that we both are into. Be that it’s watching Top Gear, Rage Quit, Ozzy or any other metal madness, the son and I have a connection. I even go out of my way to bring him to see high-end dream cars—just the two of us. And we’ll joke around and then he opens up to me. I also made the point that once he reached puberty that I won’t be upset with him using swear words around me [aka the Ozzy Osbourne School of Parenting] with the condition that he watches it around his elders (grandparents, teachers, family friends that are older and expect respectful words). Hubby, on the other hand, didn’t like my decision, but begrudgingly went along with it. I am of the opinion that he says this stuff amongst his friends as it is, and I would rather he be open and honest in how he feels…I have to find the article I read that supports this. to be continued….
