I was thinking about the soldier’s exploits and my own and thought of my (perennial) ex-boyfriend, Scott who came from a well-to-do family.
He once told me that it was the “little people” who did everything important in the world. This was about 28 years ago at the time I was filing the sexual harassment lawsuit which he supported.
“Yep, we’d be lost without the little people” he said. “There would be no progress at all.” (Scott has an Aquarius Moon)
“Are you calling me a little people? Do you think I am a little people?”
“Well yes I do, Elsie. I do think you’re a little people.”
“And you’re not? Well I’ll be damned. So what do you non-little people do while us little people do all the important stuff?”
“Oh, well we talk about what you do. We read about it in the paper and discuss it over our opulent dinners. Opulent. Do you know that word, Elsie?”
“Fuck you, Scott. I will cram that opulent dinner down your throat, you fuckin’ asshole.” ::smile::
Having garnered the reaction he was looking for, Scott laughed heartily….
With Pluto in Capricorn, 2008-2024, some of these so-called little people may actually come to power. I live in hope.
