Jesting: A jest has been described as a fishhook (and line) set in hard candy. At first it’s almost funny but after a while its humor melts and the hook begins to tug. Did a jest like my “fish slice” ever cause you deep personal concern?
Without approval: Did you “move out” without parental approval… Do you face the same situation as a parent, with your child? How did you (or might) you handle it now?
A vow: There are very few opportunities to make a vow before God in a religious ceremony. Do you think it might actually make a difference from other “legal” promises?
