Daniel,

I'm glad I share a brother in arms in the "flip flop" subject. I posted one such discussion a month or so ago, and got utterly lambasted for calling men unmanly for wearing these monstrosities. I agree whole heartedly with you Sir. Flip flops are for the public shower, not the public street.

Used my first straight razor today. It wasn't as bad as everyone had me thinking. Did I cut myself? Sure. But, did I rush to the hospital needing a pint of blood? No.

Family

Since losing the faith I find I have a difficult time maintaining close relationships with my parents and siblings who are strong believers. We don't fight, we all love each other, but there is a barrier that prevents anything too deep from happening. They are still faithfully waiting and expecting a prodigal son to return, so things seem to be a state of arrested development.I'd love to read about anybody's experience/success with bridging this divide in a healthy way, or of what potential…See More
