First, an announcement! I've decided that I'm going to be starting a series on the Delphic Maxims soon. I personally feel that every Hellenist should (at some point) examine the Delphic Maxims and apply them to our own life. I intend to give a "modern equivalency", what it means, and where it might be misapplied.
Second, this. This reminds me of my Dad a lot. When I was in high school he always assumed I was trying to get with a girl anytime I mentioned one. Now that he knows I'm gay, he awkwardly waddles around the topic of my boyfriend. Ah, parental involvement!
