Recently that noted young environmentalist, Iris uber Alles, said to me passionately, "Did you know there's a huge garbage dump on the moon? All those astronauts just dumped all their trash up there!"
"Uh, Iris, I thought you didn't believe in the moon landing," I said.
There was then a long, awkward pause.
Emerson: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."
Not incidentally, one of my mother's favorite quotations.
Thank you, Lanafactrix. I'll try to get the attribution right next time!
Heh, I only know because she used to quote it at me ALL THE DAMN TIME.
Were you a remarkably consistent child? Or a finger-pointing child who noticed her mother's inconsistencies? Someone should have found you a quote about the glories of beautiful consistency to use in return.
