Re: Things old ladies do...
One night a boyfriend and I were watching TV and eating chocolate chips out of a small bowl. He mention that he liked chocolate chip cookies, being a good girlfriend I said I'd make him some, excused myself, went into the kitchen and quietly called my grandmother on the phone to talk me through the process.
It's easy to support someones beliefs if they are identical to your own.
Tolerating beliefs that you don't personal embrace, or even fully understand, is harder.
