Happy Easter

I’m reminded of the probably fictional story doing the rounds of the mortification of a set of parents who took their young child to a restaurant. When asked what the child wanted to eat, he says “I wish to devour the unborn!” After a stunned moment of silence, an embarrassed parent says “Eggs, he’d like eggs.”

It’s Easter Sunday, of course, where people are gorging themselves on chocolate, and at least here in the UK also giving thanks for a couple of extra days off. Oh yes, and of course there’s that religious element too – which I have all manner of mixed emotions around depending on time of day, memories, seasons and random fluctuations in causality. I grew up in a vicarage, so it’s fair to say I had a religious upbringing, but that’s not where my path has taken me these days.

So, if you are celebrating – Happy Easter, He is Risen – if not, hope you’re having a great time with your families, or doing whatever you please. We’re having a quiet day, and some friends over for Cards Against Humanity in the evening. I think I’m going to go and craft some more #MadeUpModFacts
