Fashion Tips for a Crucifixion

Not to offend anyone’s Christian sensibilities, this is about the ways a child learns about the world. Here is a more-or-less verbatim account of a recent conversation (in the car, of course) with my seven-year-old granddaughter:

Chloe: What did Jesus wear on the cross? Was he naked, with his privates showing?

Gramma: No, he’s usually shown wearing a cloth wrapped around his hips, covering his privates. It’s called a loincloth.

C: It’s interesting that women have more privates to cover. What would a woman wear if she was crucified?

G: I’m not sure if women were crucified, but I guess they’d have a wrap around their breasts.

C: …

G: But in some cultures women don’t cover their breasts.

C: Why?

G: In some societies, especially in more primitive times, women covered themselves only from the waist down. Breasts were there for feeding babies and weren’t anything to be ashamed of.

C: What’s for dinner?

Happy Easter! We’ve had fun this year coloring and hiding eggs, and Gary, aka the Crazy Easter Rabbit, has some tricks up his sleeve for today. Sedate Gramma has fixed a pretty Easter basket, but C.E.R. is cooking up a scavenger egg hunt all over the condo complex. Hope the neighbors don’t mind.

Now that the fabulously successful and amazing Mozart Requiem Undead project is over, I’ll be back with more blogging soon.
