Those questions

Do you ever get asked those honest-in-the-moment questions by your Top that as a sub, you just can't help but blink at in confused irony?

No, it's not that I've had one, but the Feast of the Epiphany (or the Feast of the Three Kings) is this Wednesday. As an atheist, I don't really celebrate Epiphany but I've always retained the tradition learned from my parents that it was Epiphany that marked the end of the Christmas season. After the 6th, it was "OK" to take down the decorations.....and that is what I'll be doing later this week.

Epiphany also gives me the perfect excuse to post this:

This is a painting by the surrealist Max Ernst, cleverly twisting the Epiphany into a bizarre little commentary utilizing the image of divine,maternal discipline doled out by Mary herself. (I particularly love the way the OTK struggle has caused Jesus' halo to fall onto the floor.)
