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.

That certainly may be true.

For my part, I guess I *am* willing to go out of my way a little. I figure, once I've made an effort on their behalf, if they *still* find my practices and beliefs offensive, then fuck them with impunity

Guess I'm gettin' old :)

yeah, right. I'll believe that when I see it. :-P

apparently I'm not as much of a hard ass as I think I am; I think gratuitous offensiveness (e.g., most of T-shirt Hell) is the epitome of rudeness, but I also believe that many things that are considered offensive need to be expressed in spite of that. "smoke crack and worship Satan" doesn't really fall into that category, but I don't consider it particularly offensive either.
