Piers Ploughman was written by a possibly semi-legendary guy named William Langland.

I found a King James Bible today in my things. It was inscribed to me as a child by my aunt and uncle.
Maybe one day I'll read the whole thing.

1. My closest friend is Trinidadian and she teaches me about Hinduism
2. My former friend was Baha'í but we had a very bad disagreement and haven't spoken in 21 years
3. My uncle was an archdeacon in the Church of England

I wish I had gone camping like Sir Gawain did.

He forestalled getting his head cut off----because of his faith. Rather like Isaac and his son.

The Baha'i person might still be in your orbit.


1. My wife is Trinidadian.

2. I had a Trinidadian girlfriend in the 1980s, too.

3. My wife's son is a carpenter.

1. She might be Trinidadian, but she doesn't teach you about Hinduism.

Oops. I just learned something from Google: Hinduism is the second most common religion on Trinidad and Tobago.

So much for me speaking in ignorance! I change my answer to 3. Is that cheating?

There are many Muslim Indian Trinidadians, too.

Most of the Afro-Trinidadians are Christian. My wife is an Afro-Trinidadian.

Sometimes, the African and Indian Trinidadians don't get along. Their political parties are at least partially based on their ethnic heritage. But some do. My wife's brother's wife is of Indian heritage.

Yes, she does teach me about Hinduism because I find it fascinating.
Yes, I had a very bad falling-out with my former friend in 1997. She phoned me to say she wasn't my friend any more.
No, my uncle wasn't an archdeacon. My great-uncle's brother was (or someone like that; I forget the relation).

Sorry, my computer was frozen.

My wife's father was born in Toco, on the wild northeast coast of Trinidad. He used to hunt wild game, and eat it. He worked in the courts, like I work in the courts. He didn't finish primary school; but that didn't matter.

He passed away in 2012. He constantly wore a fedora, even shortly before he passed away.

My wife found about it while we were visiting my father.

My condolences. I'm still grieving my father and I know how painful that can be.

1. I'm watching my favourite episode of Six Feet Under
2. I'd like to hang out with Brenda Chenowith, because we are very similar
3. I love David Fisher :heart:
4. I watched SFU in Spanish when I was in Costa Rica

(one lie)

1. Yes, I'm watching The Room episode
2. This is not a lie. I really like Brenda and identify with her very strongly
3. I'm nuts about David. :heart: :heart: :heart:
4. I watched SFU in Spanish in Mexico, not Costa Rica. This was my lie.

For some reason, I'm thinking #2 is your lie. Do I have good Wolfie Sense?


1. I almost drowned in the sea by Blanchisseuse, on the northern coast of Trinidad.

2. I was saved by Trinidadians who formed a line out to the sea. One guy grabbed my hand.

3. I wasn't trying to save anybody while I got trapped in the rip current.

Huh... I wonder why no one selected 3. But... I'll admit to 2 being a lie.
