zirconium: snapshot of cookie cutter star from sorghum marshmallow making (Default)
It's not that we ever change the plotline, exactly. It's just that the specifics are negotiable; we pick and choose (and, okay, sometimes make up) the details depending upon our moods, our audience, or how loud the person talking over us is. The one about the Passover when my sister and I spiked Elijah’s Manischewitz with hot sauce--just to see which adult played the prophet and gulped down the wine while we children answered the door--can be poignant, cynical, or hilarious depending on the telling. And the fact that my uncle Danny turned even redder in the face than usual and downed three glasses of water afterward answered the question.
