Laughing Out Loud
Our preparatory monologue would include "And if they ask you about religion, don't say we're not Christian, and don't say 'Pagan,' just say 'Unitarian.'"
HT to Mungo.

Confession. I once made my son take off his Harry Potter shirt before we went to a homeschool park day.
Back when the same son was a baby, before I conceived his sister, I (ahem) smoked. And I would plan my cigarrettes around LLL meetings and informal outings with said crunchy, earthy friends.
It was easier to quit smoking a pack of Marlboros a day than it was trying to keep my crunchy badge.

Mine were once cautioned before our group's Park Day to curb their enthusiasm for their current reading selection, Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy.
I forgot to remind them again though when we went to a family gathering with the fundamentalist relatives, and heard this snippet of a conversation involving my oldest daughter in response to, "What's your favorite book?":
"No, daemons, they're an outward manifestation of your soul..."
I was too far away for a kick under the table.
