When I meet people I make sure that I’m as ambiguous as I can be about things. I often refer to my wife as a non-gendered “partner”, I stay quiet about my political views and let the other person do all the talking and when religion is concerned I let people do the talking and chip in the bits of my knowledge that I have. I’m like white noise and it goes some way for people not being sure how to take me. I like to have some mystery about who I am (having said that, I’m always very open on my blog).
Tomorrow is Easter. As an atheist I’m having an Easter egg and then I’m going to my wife’s mother’s house for roast lamb.
I do feel weird about eating lamb. They’re babies.
