Bitter herbs and neuroses
It's unsettling when your personal creation myth doesn't jibe with reality. That's why creationists are so scared of science; Copernicus didn't even publish in his own lifetime 'cause he knew people need to be at the center of their universe. The present can seem meager and narrow, so it's nice to remember the past as glorious. Anyway, “remember you were slaves in Egypt” sounds better than “remember we were guest workers in the construction trades.” Meanwhile I'm here checking the household hints section of the Picayune to see if anybody knows the best way to get blood off a lintel.
