Bratcat was working on her homework for English tonight. She has to read an article about when you are confronted with comments and jokes that you find derogatory, racial, etc. She has to lead a discussion on how it makes you feel and how people can deal with it.
In the article, it offers two messages from teenagers about diversity. One message is "Everyone on the face of the earth has the same intestines."  Um, not everyone! Of course, we found that completely funny.  Thought you might enjoy the chuckle.

Bratcat is lucky to have such a good perspective and sense of humor at such a young age. Thanks for the smile and it's nice to be special.

I am so happy to hear that Bratcat has settled into University and enjoying it. Also, that you are coping. You must be happy that Bratcat had already decided to live at home during this school year. I am sure it is a comfort to have her there. I am hoping that nonamejames is doing okay health-wise.

It is great to see you back at this site!
