I was reminded of this blog post when Marston came up to me this afternoon and told me that "people are saying that" I'm imperious, domineering and scary.
Naturally I'm not falling for the old "people are saying that" shtick. So I decided I would confront it head on. There were 47 Beaker Folk at Filling-up of Beakers this evening. I gave them each a button, and left a jar by the door on the way out.
Basically, if anyone thought I was a bullying control freak, they were to drop their button in the jar. If not, they were to take the button home with them, as a lasting symbol of their loyalty.
Anyway, good news is that a traditionalist friend of mine is being ordained as an Anglican deacon, and is making his own cassock.....
Anyone want a few buttons? I seem to have eight spare.
