The dating blues

Carol and I “broke up” soon after our first kiss, but I can’t really remember why or how.
I do remember that the split occurred on a Sunday morning before church, and during service she suddenly burst out sobbing. I didn’t have a clue about what to do, but then that’s fairly typical for me.
The angst sent me into another bout of celibacy, not that I was beating girls off with a stick. The truth is that I was very shy around girls.

Food for Thought

Once I had an art teacher who was big on having frequent sessions in which we critiqued our work– or rather in which he and our classmates critiqued our work. We were never allowed to put in our own two cents worth, be it in defense of, or ideas for altering, what we had done. If we had ideas for improvements, it was assumed we would have implemented them before the critique session and, likewise, I suppose that if the artwork couldn’t stand on its own merits, there was no defense.
