It had to happen eventually

You know how I know I'm officially a grown up? I can think of no context in which I would be willing to wear my "smoke crack and worship satan" t-shirt out of the house anymore. I don't think I have in at least 8 years. I'm just worried I'll seriously offend someone. I used to not care if they didn't get the joke, but now it seems unkind somehow. I seem to have lost the desire to freak the mundanes. I want to make them tea instead. Maybe a nice pan of brownies.

I think this is a good thing, but it does make me a little wistful sometimes.

I've never been able to wear t-shirts with the word "fuck," or anything else obscene, on them. I considered that quite the flaw when I was younger.
A few years ago, a couple of my non-freak friends proudly presented me with a shirt they'd found, that said FREAK across the top, and had a very graphic drawing of a woman mastubating. It's hard to imagine a shirt I'd be less willing to wear in public. But when they bought, they were thrilled because it was so perfect for me.

On the other hand, I wear my TEAM SATAN 666 shirt fairly often, because everyone I encounter seems delighted and amused by it.

But yeah, what you said. Freaking out 'mundande' people is just less of a goal. And maybe more than just that: Since doing the foreign exchange program and living only with mundanes for a few years, I get sorta annoyed when people our age talk about how more alive or whatever we are than them. We're just different in some ways, but the same in a lot more ways. We were supposed to think that when we were 20>, but now we should know better.
Not saying I would want to live freak-free again, mind you. They are a LITTLE different.

Yeah, I agree that freakhood is ultimately only a small part of being human. I'm proud of my neophilia, and my innate preference for the innovative and the edgy. But I do not think that it makes me a superior person or anything.
