Have you done any charity stitching, been in one, or would like to organize one? This is one of those times when I should just shut up, but you know I can't. Is this question literate? I mean, we all know what is meant, but can you parse it? I thought not.
My immediate response to this question was, "ugh!" And my perusal of responses demonstrated that there were only a few ways to answer this question:
- "Oh, no, I'm too much of a perfectionist."
- "I really should, but..."
- "Yes, of course, let me tell you how self-satisfied I am or how charity makes the world revolve."
- "No, but I gave at the office."
I've always been one of those people who believed some things are just private, religion among them (esp now with the demogogues telling us that liberals hate Christmas). Some stuff you should just do, and then shut up about it. The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be charity, and is only pride and ostentation.--William Hutton
