The Black Sheep of Gods Family - Camerin Courtney
April 27, 2005

I had a bad feeling from the name of the event: Gods Design for Womanhood. But a cool new friend invited me to this Saturday afternoon tea and talk at her church, so I ignored my reservations and agreed to go. Surely it wouldnt be as wife- and mom-centric as I feared. As I crafted an e-mail back to my friend telling her Id be delighted to join her, I scolded myself: Youre just too cynical and jaded.

the allergy along to me. But he didnt know. "Youre not certain? I
asked. "You dont know. Maybe youre not." True enough, he said, but he
didnt want to take the risk.

I never quite got over his revelation. Now and then Id say, out of the
blue, "Cmon -- lets go over to Northwestern Memorial right now -- well
split a shrimp cocktail in the emergency room lobby. If you start to go into
shock, well be right there. One shrimp. Theyre great. You dont know what
youre missing. He always refused.
