I draw on tribal privileges here. Just as Sherman Alexie gets away with lobbing hilarious shots at Native Americans in his Freakin' Marvelous short stories, I revel in the idiosyncrasies of Quakerism.
I wasn't going to tweet the possibly-insulting-to-Quakers-Tweet, but then I did. It is an experiment. I'm watching my body to see how it responds to this moral transgression. The Buddha taught that our bodies are the first part of us to register moral responses to ourselves and the world. Can't say I've spent much time noticing that, but by golly! This is going to change.
Here's the Tweet: QUAKERISM: AN OPPORTUNITY TO WEAR UGLY SHOES AND FEEL SMUG ABOUT IT.

So far, I feel a nervous flutter in my stomach and an ohgodwhathaveIdone tension pressing from the top of my head and clamping my eyes.
What do you feel?
