something made me realize there was a BIG bonus to the way i was raised. since my parents didn't like me and everyone else's parents did, it took a village to raise me.

i was always being taken in by some parent or other. i grew up in puerto rican homes, irish catholic homes, italian, jewish . . . you name it.

that, more than anything else, helped form my cultural education and how i relate to people. it also largely explains why i am not inflicted with the racism my parents are cursed with. yes, they adopted a black baby and a half black baby, but it was a show for the church. funny since racism was a big part of the church until the mid 70s - i guess it was a token showing, wards would be standing on their heads for our beneton ad family, or something equally twisted.

but yeah, thinking back, it is really cool how many households i was a part of.
