I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Archival Minds II -- My Spouse

My spouse belongs in this list, as he’s known me since high school. Along with the usual marital mind-meld -- “Darling, what’s that tv show I like, with that guy?” -- he also delights in calling me out on my pretensions. “I like that Billy Ray Cyrus. I don’t know why…” I’ll muse. And he’ll reply, “I know why. You’ve always had a thing for the peach fuzz boys.”
