Wow that's brilliant! (practicing my English for when I trek on over to the UK in October)

Seriously, to this day, any gig I do is regarded as "you're still doing that?" Even after all these years. Acceptance over things you cannot change is a wonderful thing. As a parent, I think it's wrong to force your children to accommodate what YOU want them to be. Everybody is unique and should be encouraged to be who THEY are, not what the parents WANT them to be.
