When I was seven I kicked a kid in the nuts while everyone was waiting for their rides. No reason for it, he was a really nice regular kid. I think I saw it on tv. I didn't get in trouble for it at all, but I felt bad about it. I thought it'd be funnier.

You need this song, Frown.

I once ruined a friendship when I was 12 because I was such a tyrannical director. We were filming a circus scene involving a stuffed squirrel with the camcorder and we got into a heated argument about how exactly the squirrel should be hoisted into the air. (The squirrel was an aerial silks artist performing a routine to Chris Isaak's cover of "Dark Moon" which was playing on the boombox ,which was accompanied by our very bad keyboard playing. But Kayla wanted the squirrel to be some lowly trapeze artist.) We didn't speak for years.

Age 12 was great for me because I had little parental supervision AND a beautiful wolf dog. Things began to go sharply downhill once I entered middle school and discovered that boys (and girls) did NOT appreciate my courting methods, which included shrieking at them like a dinosaur and wearing increasingly bizarre outfits to class in hopes of getting their attention.

I prefer to call people ever more offensive names and mock their life in general. Still working out the kinks.

Without, I hope, crossing any line here (so tell me if I do) I'd like to ask Mord a question. Well, a few linked ones really. Did your father ever get what was coming to him? Is he still alive? If he is dead, do you believe (or hope) as a Christian, which I know you are, that he is in Hell, or if he is alive do you believe or hope that will be his final destination?

Again, sorry if this is intrusion; it isn't meant to be. I would like to know he paid for his horrible crime in one world or the next.

Those are all solid courting tactics, but you also have to fight them.

Is it even possible to cross a line on MB?

Anyway, thanks for asking. I hope I can provide my perspective.

First off, he wasn't my dad. He was my mom's third "husband". Did he get what was coming to him? As far as I know, no. Not in the sense of what you're talking about--some kind of justice. Basically, he got away with everything. My mom left him just before my 16th birthday. He'd stopped abusing me a couple years before that because he was smart and could see what a big man I would grow into. I never saw him after that, and my mom, being complicit in the whole thing, never sought justice.

Is he still alive? Last I heard a few years ago, he was. My sister got in contact with one of his daughters on Facebook. I saw a photo of him with his daughters (whom he never molested), and I was shocked. Why? Because as a child, I remembered him as a big scary man. As a 6'3" man myself, I was surprised at how small he is.

What do I, as a Christian, think about his final destination? Good question. I don't think about it, because I don't think about anyone's eternal destination. It's not my place. I'm not the judge of anyone. However, as a Christian, I hope--I dearly hope and pray--everyone gets to Heaven. I would never wish hell on anyone, not even my worst enemy. And that dude was my worst enemy.

Wow. Thanks for that reply, and I must say you're a bigger man than I am - certainly in a literal sense but also in a figurative one - as I fervently hope my scumbag father (who IS my father, and the only one I ever had) goes directly to Hell, does not collect two hundred pounds and rots there for eternity in the most awful and unimaginable pain. It will be a start.

Sorry, I'm not really what you'd call a Christian, but my sister is, and she feels very much the same way (well, of course she would). Some things are impossible to forgive, impossible to forget, no matter how hard we might try to achieve the latter.
