a conversation this morning in the car
me: I'd like you to look at a video I'm thinking of using as part of my day-after-xmas multimedia sermon.
my wife: why?
me: well, the service will be intergenerational and you're more in tune with kids and I wonder if it would be scary for them. there's no violence but there are frightening images.
my wife: [after an uncomfortable pause] you have a pretty high tolerance for violent videos. [another, longer, more uncomfortable pause] I'd say as a general rule, if you question it, the answer should be "no."
