Powe is out.  Not much rain or storming...and most of the lines in our area are underground.

I'm still very concerned about the grocery store. I feel like the employees are in desperate need of therapy and their entire memory erased.

@L3sbians1ut I'm an acrophobe.  I'm not a cynophobe, not a transphobe, nor a ailurophobe (though I can't stand them) or homophobe.
            It's another hijacking of language that distorts an existing meaning.  Phobia is an irrational fear of something.  Whether I like or dislike something doesn't mean I do or don't fear it...just go to an amusement park and listen to the screams from the coasters.

@L3sbians1ut  Of course trans people are real.  I guess it depends on how you define 'trans' and 'real'.  My desire to be canine, thinking I fit 'better' that way is very real (and as I said there are tons of us out here).  But there is no 'real' to the idea that make some changes to have a male body mimic a female body actually creates a woman, or vice versa.
            There's a lot of psychological data that is interpreted to support the illusion but actual science, and not parsing of words/meaning, there is none.  I can make the claim and play with the language to say there is a spectrum to pregnancy, to parenthood or to anything; even death but it doesn't change the reality.  I can believe I'll have eternal life, but there's no science to it.  Same with human-ness, it's been done before but at the end of the day a slave, a barbarian, an untouchable...all human.  Dig up the skeletons from past ages, all human and all identifiable as male or female regardless of what that individual felt.
            Currently we use BCE and CE for historic dates.  Ok, what's the cutoff for those terms?  It's experts who changed the nomenclature, but the dates are the same as BC and AD and they are driven by the same thing.  I grew up during the Cold War.  The Soviets did this kind of stuff, changed the language to fit their aims.  That's one of many reasons they ended up in the dust bin of history.  Lies catch up, reality wins every time; it plays a long game.
            
            But these issues are rain clouds.  We get along whether we believe what the other believes or not.  I don't think you're crazy or bad and hopefully you don't think it of me either.  We disagree on some things...we both agree that story in the grocery store is messed up..so really, how far apart are we.
            
            Just don't glamour me with your face and tip my world over ;)

          That's pretty cool...or it's an indication of something very, very sick!

Hi, I am Emma and I am an avid reader and aspiring author
          I am not sure you take reading requests yet the terrible condition of things has got me "rolling my dice and hoping for the best"
          
          The book is called "what happened at the lake" and as I believe the name implies, it's a light psychological horror book that I've poured my soul into
          
          It's  a second draft, with the suggestions of all past readers appreciated and taken into account 
          
          To cut a long story short 
          
          I'll appreciate it if you give my book a chance, it would mean more than the world(or the universe for that matter) to me 
          
          Also, if you just want to talk... My dm's are always open and when I'm not programming I'm also really active here too

@devilsstepfather  Hi Emma.  I just saw this again on my page.  I usually don't read stories on here because I find I lose them if I don't read in one sitting (and I don't like using the Reading List...not a fan of the layout of this whole site).
            
            Anyway, I went and read the description of this story.  I'm intrigued.  I will at least start it, ok?

AHi again, @atomisis.  I am delighted that you enjoyed In His Sensuous Arns.
          
          I agonized over having her patch things up with hubby or ha e her tell him to get lost.
          
          It seemed best that he learn something, and have him change his behavior.

@atomisis, Wattpad has allowed me to interact with readers and writers. I've been instructive and supportive.
            
            You could say I was invited here by an 18-year-old, homeschooled farm girl who befriended me on NaNoWriMo ten years ago.
            
            After we collaborated on our respective stories for months, she discovered Wattpad and suggested I try it.
            
            At age 28, she remains my friend and hopefully will marry soon.
            
            Later I discovered it's dominated by young ladies 14-20, but more mature writers are there. 
            
            As an old man, I haven't looked like my Peace Corps photo in years. It's there for readers who might have reservations about age and capability.
            
            The mostly lady writer-friends on Wattpad have often worked out as Facebook friends. 
            
            But  friend requests from random, lovely  "females" (if they are) are suspected scams. They flatter my older looks and ask for money eventually. 
            
            
            The scams got so bad in 2012, they inspired a novel.
            
            The story about Tara is unfinished. The Castaway story has its moments isn't that good. It fails to develop the cross cultural humor it should. 
            
            It's easier to make someone cry than laugh.
            
            Thanks for your comments.

@TerryP That's nice.  I'm glad they are doing better.  I think sometimes the anonymity of the internet can be cathartic in a situation.  Like anything else, it can also lead to problems too; all in what the intent and driving forces are.

@atomisis, I wrote that story with a certain female Wattpad writer in mind in Decemberof 2012.
            
            Not that her husband was abusive. But she was having a hard time then.. Nor did she and I have any intimate interests .
            
            Things are better  in her marriage enough so that she felt comfortable enough to have a second daughter since then.
            
            Things got better, and her reputation as a writer is flourishing. 
            
            I attend church at a local army chapel. The death of a long-time friend (retired colonel) prevented me from taking my wife with me to meet her at a nearby writer's conference.
            
            She didn't want me to be too accurate about her life.
            
            I wasn't.
