Hmmm, I should have thought the child might have positively suggested that
she was a Nobody, rather, the "Nobody" that (her mother claimed) ate the
soup with the fork.
Certainly, I think along with you (John) and Jan, that we must let the past
pass, and learn to stop, to put a stop to, all this argumentative
archeology, to 'go with' rather than always 'against'. This a-siding needs
to be properly thought in a non-adversarial manner... To dwell.
