2023.05.28 07:40 philly_guy_25 Who Can I report PPA to? City Council? Also, please comment your stories of PPA incorrectly ticketing you to make my report stronger.

Hi friends,
I've been living in Philly for 2 years now and every parking ticket I've ever gotten was incorrect/unwarranted, PPA was either just wrong or their technology doesn't work and I know I'm not the only one. It seems that more and more people are getting ticketed when they have paid their meter because when they come to scan the plates, the paid meter just doesn't show up. A few weeks ago, I walked to my car which still had 30mins left on the meter and a PPA person was scanning it. I said "This one is mine and I still have 30mins" and he replied, "my machine says you never put any time on the meter and I was about to write you up, you just avoided a ticket". I checked multiple times and according to the app, I still had 30mins. Lots of my friends are having these same situations.
I'd really like to send a complaint to whichever body has authority over PPA, but it seems they are self-governing. I really want the city to do something because PPA is doing this to tons of people. It doesn't really matter to me if they are just bad at their jobs or if their technology doesn't work. It needs to be fixed regardless and they are ineffective at their jobs and harming people's lives. Parking tickets are expensive and incredibly frustrating and even if you contest them, they continue to send you threatening mail about fines doubling and court dates and other scary-sounding things. It seems that they never actually look at your case or delete the ticket. I'm lucky enough to be able to handle just paying a few to make them go away, but many people can't and this is a really sucky thing to do to people.

2023.05.28 07:40 graduatelevelalchemy 45 [M4FM] #Portland I want to date your girlfriend

There’s nothing sexier than tasting another man’s candy. Seeing the look in her eyes when she knows she’s being given away. Freely. I want to see your girlfriend timidly agree and then end the evening begging.
I would love to feel your pretty girlfriend let down her guard for me, to feel her growing needy, and then to take advantage of that need. I would, of course, give you all the details — screenshots of sexting, pics, videos, and anything else that comes of it. I want to own her mind, I want to own her body - and I want you to lead her to me. Because you know she needs it. And because you know you can’t stop thinking about it.
She’s young, in shape, and inexperienced, 18-25. I’m mid-40s, fit, professional, former military, and ready to give her what she’s been missing.

2023.05.28 07:39 Automatic_String8571 Do I have a uti?

I’m not sure if I have a uti or not. As for symptoms I’m only experiencing lower back pain that’s been lasting for a week or so, and some abdominal pain that goes and comes.
I’m trying to post the uti test I took but it deletes my post immediately.
I did the typical uti test with the strip that has two squares. The bottom was beige which I understand is negative and the top showed light purple that I guess means 125 ca cells/uL?
Whoever can help I’ll send you the photo of the result though dm and chart that I’m having hard time figuring out. Thanks!

2023.05.28 07:39 ned_without_u Nudist progress - body positivity and motivation

Ok, this is probably a longshot, and also if it's something not allowed here I apologize in advance-
I'm hoping to meet someone else who is also on a weight loss journey to help motivate each other by sharing photos along the lines of the naked progress sub. We could also chat about diet/exercise/nudism/insecurities/etc. because it would be nice to be friendly with each other- but the main goal would be that having to share or post a nude body photo regularly will help us both to stay motivated to reach our health and fitness goals.
This isn't about body shaming by any means. We should all feel good about our bodies. But for me, right now I am looking to take better care of mine than I did for a long time. I imagine there are probably others out there in similar situations.
I realize that I could just post on the naked progress sub, but I thought that having a more one on one relationship would force better motivation. You're counting on me, and I'm counting on you, ya know?
For context, and a little about me- I am a 43.M single dad. Was in great shape and loved running/fitness before I got married, but really stopped.taking care of myself over the course of a 10 year (bad) marriage. I've always been interested in social nudity for as long as I can remember, but when I was young and fit I was too embarrassed to admit it and then a few years ago when my marriage ended I felt too out of shape to try. Well, now I am at a place where I have begun running again (treadmill running is my main form of exercise) and even though my body doesn't look like it used to, I am feeling better about it. The other day I took the first nude photo of myself that I have ever taken and I loved it- it felt so liberating to take it and to see my body that way. I appreciated looking at myself more than I thought I would. One of my goals is to run in a naked 5k event.
If I'm being honest, I would prefer to find a woman who is interested in this. Gender shouldn't matter, but I think that it would keep me more motivated if I knew there was a woman I had to be vulnerable and show my insecurities.to. But to be absolutely crystal clear- I expect nothing sexual or romantic out of this. And maybe I'm wrong, so I would be open to a guy if this idea resonates with him, too. Or maybe a small group of folks?
Thanks for reading, if you made it this far! Definitely open to ideas if anyone has- even if you aren't interested in doing it.

2023.05.28 07:39 kayayem G Tube insertion recovery time?

My dad had a G tube inserted on Monday because he has dysphagia which no one can figure out the cause of (he’s seen many specialists so far). He cannot even suck on ice chips without choking. His eating before the tube was scary I was so worried he was going to choke to death.
It’s now Saturday. Every single meal (bolus feeding) he has had through the tube has caused him to vomit. It is also coming out the other end for almost 48 hours too. Is this normal and how long does it take for the body to get used to a G tube?
He is currently in a skilled nursing facility being monitored around the clock by nurses. A doctor saw him yesterday and prescribed anti-nausea medication which is crushed up and given through the tube, which he also vomits. The doctors and nurses all say he is fine and his vitals are normal and his body will just need to get used to the way he is being fed now. I am trying to believe them but it hurts me to see how miserable he is.
Also he is not allowed to drink any water but with that much vomiting and diarrhea (literally several times a day) it makes me think he needs to replace his fluids. But the doctor has not prescribed an IV and the nurses aren’t worried about it. The only fluids he is getting right now are during flushing and with crushed medication. The nurse said if she gave him more fluids through the tube he will bloat and become even more uncomfortable. This gives me red flags but I also don’t have a medical degree so what do I know.
Thanks for any insight or your experience that you can give me!

2023.05.28 07:39 holy_vermin95 THE COMPLETE LORE OF SLEEP TOKEN

The complete lore of Sleep Token (as I see it). Bear in mind this is after a sudden urge to understand the lore and create a timeline of events. I know many of y'all have been doing this longer, this is just my interpretation of the timeline assuming every song is in sequence (I'll mention exceptions).
As I've said before in another post, I see the story of Sleep Token as the redemption story of Vessel (the character) who is being punished by some unknown force through a deity named Sleep. Sleep is unaware of this and just sees Vessel as "another vessel" to feast on and ruin, but because Vessel is stronger and wants to improve he breaks free by the end of TMBTE with a new outlook on life. So I'll be interpreting the story with that in mind. Here's the story:
III. JAWS - (Vessel -> Sleep) Now that Vessel and Sleep are entangled, Vessel asks Sleep to show him love by eating him. Now it is unclear whether this is what Vessel truly likes or if Sleep makes him believe that, but either way this is what Sleep wanted so they're okay with it. There's many more times Vessel asks Sleep to "take a bite" of him and many more references to vorarephilia (even a song called "Vore") so maybe Vessel just wants that.
IV. "The Way that You Were" - (Vessel -> Eden) This songs seems to be about Vessel reminiscing about Eden perhaps talking to her in a dream (considering they're probably not on speaking terms after he literally shot her). Eden is a very troubled soul, with repeated patterns of self harm, and Vessel has an imaginary conversation with her talking about it. Vessel shows no remorse for how he treated her and does not comfort her in any way, showing he has a long way to go for his redemption (in "Are You Really Okay?"). He just says all these things in a very stoic fashion.
If you've read this far, thank you so much haha! This is my interpretation of just the lyrics of the songs and the story that they tell. I understand that there's much more lore to be found in Sleep Token. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Worship.

2023.05.28 07:39 InspiringSFAdmin Which to get 2023 integra A spec Tech or TLX base trim?

please bear with me as I try to explain, so give you a better understanding of my question at the end.
I been looking for a car for a while. Something mid luxurious and within my budget. I moved and sold car and decided my next new car should be an SUV. I have also owned sedans and wanted to switch to SUV. Bigger, mover truck space and other things.
After tones of research, I ended up on Volkswagen SEL R Line. Everything else is too much money. Anyway, I quickly found out it is almost impossible to find a dealership that Carrie’s that model, let alone the interior color I wanted. I Put a deposit Down but it’s been like 2 months and they say the order is still showing up as in queue.
So I started looking into Acura. I really liked the MDX A-Spec tech but it’s too much money. I also like that TLX A-spec tech ( I know it’s not an suv but I have to open my options at this point) but it’s too much money too.
I ended up at the Integra A-spec tech. Great car, love it for many of the same reasons other ppl love it too but there is something about the inside of it that just makes it feel a little small and am not sure why. I fit in it ok but I just don’t know what it is.
I tested drive it and all. after a lot of back and forth with the dealership gave me a good deal on the Integra about 1500 off when all was set and done.
Now, they also give me the same off on the TLX but on the base trim. The TLX looks nice too and feels little bigger inside. It’s not as fully loaded as the Integra but I thought after like 2 yrs or so if I got it I could trade it for something better maybe get an SUV I wanted.
My question is would it be better to take the 2023 Integra A-spec tech or the TLX base trim which is more money than the integra value could be more if kept in good condition. I most likely will be trading whatever car I got for something better.
Thank you all in advance.

2023.05.28 07:39 italianlass89 Maintaining color

Hi everyone , I’ve been pressing flowers now for almost 3 years and have not seemed to crack how to maintain the color. Most of the frames with flowers off made maintain the color pretty well for a year or two but then fade, some completely. I know people out there do color enhancement stuff but there are so many pressors who claim to do it all “ naturally” yet I wonder how they are able to maintain the color or do they just caveat their sales by saying it’ll fade over time ? I’ve told people to keep any frames out of direct sunlight and not in humid places so I’m not sure what else to try. Thank you!

2023.05.28 07:38 djmariah311 Hiiii

Soooo. I'm a lady truck driver. I drink lots of vodka when I'm not driving. It's keeping me just a llliiitttle above FA. If it wasn't for my job I'd be way back in CA territory like I was years ago. (detox,)
today I drank two pints of blue smirnoff, I do it about every three days. Never drive drunk. If I have an opportunity to drink and next day off, I'm doing it. It's my happy place... I feel like when I drink I'm myself.
But then, I get rude and say dumb shit on FB. There are people in my family who cut me off. But really I don't care. I'm fine with it. (I'm not fine with it)
I deleted fb off my phone cause I can't use it responsibly. And when I'm sober I don't use it at all.
When I wake up in the morning dealing with the hatred of myself, I will read Twitter for hours, drink lots of milk, have a sugar free monster, shit a lot, and wait till the dread dissipates, and wonder, oh shit, what did I do on social media.. Spent some money on tik tok, and then delete all emails about how much money I spent drunk.
Then I watch a lot of tru crime so I don't feel so bad about myself. (at least I'm not as bad as Dahmer)
I don't know why I do the things I do but I feel very isolated, like nobody knows what I'm going through. Love you all.

Biscotti @ Good Day Farms
I went to pick up Revolution's Biscotti since it was wayyy on sale. But i was convinced to go with Good Days instead. Honestly I was really doubtful of this stuff, not for any particular reason - just didn't hear much about it I guess. But it's surprisingly pretty strong. Smells pretty gasy, tastes pretty gasy and kinda peppery. Don't care for the taste much but normally one blunt doesn't do it for me, and with this stuff it definitely did. So if you've been thinking about trying it, definitely run it.

2023.05.28 07:38 Painting-PortraitART What is the classical transparent method?

What is the classical transparent method?

(1) The first draft of sketch. Transparent painting relies heavily on clear, successful monochromatic underpainting -- the sketch. At this stage, you can use any sketching medium -- charcoal strips, color chalk, etc. -- to clearly define a frame that can fill in the background color -- the sketch. After that, apply a coat of hair spray or polish.


(2) pure gray painting. Grey, usually white and black, can also be painted with ochre or brown and white. The basic requirement is a strong contrast of light and dark layers, as far as possible with bright colors, because each time the color will make the picture a little darker. According to the principle of "fat cover thin", this stage as little oil as possible, ancient painters use lead white, because lead white in oil paints the most "thin", and black oil, so less. In the performance of the portrait with strong contrast between light and shade levels, it does not mean that the darker the better, on the basis of maintaining brightness, the deepest tone in the middle gray. When painting gray, always have a fan pen or oil roller, and constantly use it to smooth out the paint, generally only where really need to make thicker strokes. Once the gray painting is finished, let it dry for at least two days before applying a coat of glossy oil, which helps to smooth subsequent layers.

(3) Coloring. The beginning of the color layer to be generalized, a large area of pure diluted glazing color is the first step in the coloring process. After a layer of light color dry to cover the next layer of color, the interval is about one to two days. Of course, you can use wet cover wet painting, but it is not easy to control the color, so many artists using transparent painting at the same time painting several pictures.

(4) Thin coating. After transparent coloring, in order to increase the body sense and texture of the image, the highlights and details are often highlighted by thin coating. A lot of white and a lot of toning oil are applied to the glazing color after drying. More toning oil is to comply with the principle of "fat cover thin". Note: Do not use turpentine at this stage. Turpentine is only used in the gray painting stage.

In transparent painting, glazing and shading can alternate with thin coating. Sometimes two or three times, maybe more than 30 or 40 times. After the work is finished, it is dried for a few months and then coated with varnish.

Some people say that there are as many techniques as there are artists who use transparent painting, so transparent painting is not limited to the above methods. Painters can explore their own techniques and styles according to their own needs. Here is another classical transparent painting method:

Custom oil portrait, Original Personalized portrait painting, History portrait, Hand Painted Oil Painting portrait From Photos


First with charcoal draft, and then with a long front drawing pen dipped in latex mixed black paint or ink accurately outline, and then with a large brush pen dipped in "three-in-one" oil (Dama polishing oil: linseed oil: turpentine = 1∶1∶3) to adjust the thin color ochre color, with loose brushwork painted the picture, and then wipe with a rag to absorb the excess oil. The second step: dip a large amount of emulsion (methyl cellulose emulsion or casein emulsion, see "the production of Tampera emulsion"), adjust titanium dioxide to draw the light part of the object, while the white is not dry, brush gently to the dark part of the transition, creating a white effect showing the middle tone, at this time the contrast between light and dark picture should be generalized and strong. The third step: white dry followed by "three in one" oil powder glaze dyeing, that is, the so-called "glazing". If you do not have toner, you can use oil painting paper to absorb the oil. The second step of lifting white and the third step of glaze dyeing repeatedly until the perfect combination of modeling and color.

Because this technique uses latex whitening, so drying quickly, glaze dyeing can be in a short time after conjunctiva, so it can be continuous operation. Should note: the initial glaze dyeing can not use too much oil. In addition, the canvas base should have oil absorption, initial painting dry, gradually glossy.

Classical transparent painting requires a process of getting familiar with the material, and the painter needs to accumulate experience in practice.

2023.05.28 07:37 LukeWasNotHere The Men of The Mountain

“Dad, can you tell me the story?” The son asked, pulling his covers.
“I will try. Promise you’ll sleep afterwards.” The father replied, grabbing a chair.
“Promise.” He said.
The father leaned in close, a half whisper, soft and comforting, like a campfire in a long night.
“There was once a mountain, the tallest and wildest in all the lands. So vast and so steep no man nor animal could climb it or claim it. They sat for so long, so alone they did not know what the ground was like. They grew used to the lack of air, the height, the wind and the cold. Other days, the rain and the heat. They forgot to be scared of the ground.
Until one day. An animal did climb upon that mountain, the bravest of all the animals on the ground. The strongest, the fastest, the ones the animals feared. Once it saw what lived on its peak it became the smallest. The scaredest, littlest thing on a great giant mountain, not made for things like them.
They fought, The Men of The Mountain were primitive but matched only in their ferocity. Many battles took place but soon the animals were forced to stop.
They not used to the mountain, the air, the height, the wind and the cold. The rain and the heat. But, once the battles were over, when the last of the animals were caged, the Men of The Mountain did the thing they always did. ‘Why?’ They asked. ‘Why?’
‘Why come to our mountain, for it is so steep and so cold? Why fight us?’
The animals answered, ‘We climbed because we had to. Because we lost, and because she made us.’ They then told the story of revolt, of trying and failing. For hundreds of years. A story of tyranny and a tragedy. How the ruler made the animals go all throughout the lands to find others to conquer.
The Men of The Mountain wept for them. For some came from a place higher than the mountain, after losing, forced to go down. Then the Men of The Mountain climbed down, to the ground they long forgot. To see things they could have never imagined or hoped.
And with the animals they fought together. Fought the ruler to free the animals they once killed. To free all the other animals throughout the land. Now the Men of The Mountain are the most feared, not the biggest or strongest. Yet, they’re presence is met with fear or anger buried, and sometimes even love.
Some other animals chose to climb that mountain, they talked of wonderful things. After they avoided the deadly. The way the sun set on the clouds in the most peculiar way. The smells. The animals also built for that mountain the same as the men, their danger and beauty.
The Men of The Mountain are still feared. Many will never dare come near it, but to those who do, it seems as though the mountain has tempered their bodies, but not their hearts. For they have saved our people too.”
“Thanks,” The son spoke, his voice growing soft and weary in sleep. “Love you, Dad.”
“Sweet dreams, I love you more.”

2023.05.28 07:37 TheShadowspawn Chapter Thirty-Six - Alcohol

Captain knocks on the door to Human Dave's quarters, and an assenting yell to enter is heard.
Human Dave is seated on the floor, holding a glass bottle that contains a clear liquid, looking very relaxed.
Alien Captain: "Human Dave, are you alright?"
HD: "Captain! Never better!"
Human Dave starts giggling uncontrollably while looking at Captain.
AC: "Human Dave, are you quite certain? You are acting atypical of your normal behaviour, especially as I have noticed you are sitting atop your datapad."
HD: "I am?"
Human Dave looks down and also notices that he is sitting on a datapad; the screen having cracked from his weight.
HD: "Ah, crap. I'll have to fix that later."
AC: "Human Dave, what is that bottle?"
HD: "Oh, this? It's a little present from my dad. He finally managed to make some quality booze and had it shipped to me by courier."
AC: "Booze?"
HD: "Right. Uhh... what's the word again? Oh! Right! Alcohol!"
AC: "Alcohol? Is that not an extremely dangerous substance used to keep surfaces and skin sterile in preparation for surgery? Why are you ingesting it?"
Human Dave takes another swig from the bottle.
HD, slurring: "Coz' this one tastes good. Alcohol is something that humans consume regularly for rec... rec... it's used to loosen us up and help us relax, Captain."
AC: "Human Dave, you appear to be intoxicated."
HD: "I am, Captain! I'm intoxi... in... I'm drunk, Captain!"
AC, unnerved: "...maybe I should go and get Doctor. Perhaps she has something that can remedy this situation."
HD, loudly: "Nooo. I'm fine, Captain. It'll wear off after I sleep."
AC: "..."
HD, trailing off: "Might regret gettin' so drunk when I wakes up, but I'll be fine."
Human Dave slowly leans to the side and slumps onto the ground.
The contents of the bottle spill slightly, but the bottle appeared to be mostly empty when Human Dave fell.
A snort sounds out loudly, startling Captain for a moment, which is followed by loud snoring.
AC: "..."
AC: "Maybe I will get Doctor, just in case."
AC: "What is your professional opinion, Doctor?"
Doctor and Captain stand in Human Dave's quarters.
Doctor is keeping a close eye on Human Dave while using a medical grade scanner to ascertain his current condition.
Alien Doctor: "Human Dave will be fine, Captain. Humans are capable of metabolising ethanol in this form, but excess is not recommended."
Human Dave snorts loudly again but continues to sleep.
AC: "How will we know how much is considered an excessive amount?"
AD: "That depends on the individual human, Captain. I am willing to bet that Human Dave knows his limits and will not imbibe in excess of his body's limits."
AC: "Is ethanol not extremely harmful to sentient beings?"
AD: "It is, however, humans have made many forms that are capable of being ingested by many species in the galaxy. I daresay that this one that Human Dave has consumed is too strong for our biology, but he may have access to weaker forms that are compatible with our bodies."
AC: "You sound as though you want to ingest such a deadly substance."
AD: "... I will admit that my scientific curiosity is considering the idea, as I am somewhat curious as to how our physiology will react to intoxication in this form."
AC: "... how intoxication is somehow a curiosity to you, Doctor, I will never understand."
AD: "However, that is a discussion to take place after Human Dave has awakened from his alcohol-induced slumber."
HD: "... oh, God, my head!"
AD: "Human Dave, how are you feeling?"
Human Dave runs a hand over his face, and it settles over his eyes.
HD, covering his eyes: "... like I just went seven rounds with a Keltiss War-kin."
AD: "Ah. Interesting. Human Dave, drink this."
Doctor hands Human Dave a water pouch, and he takes it gratefully.
HD, between sips of water: "Thank you very much, Doctor. Have you been studying up on human biology and physiology again?"
AD: "I have had a somewhat interesting refresher, especially in regards to intoxication in your species, Human Dave."
HD: "Ah. Did I do anything too embarrassing?"
AD: "Aside from making Captain panic slightly, no. Which is a pity. I have heard that humans make wonderful fools of themselves when intoxicated."
HD: "Well, at least I didn't try to take the engine apart."
AD: "..."
HD: "I didn't try to take the engine apart, did I?"
AD: "Sadly, no. It would have been an amusing sight."
Human Dave continues to sip at his water pouch, still covering his eyes.
HD: "Did you need something else from me, Doctor? You seem curious about something."
AD: "I was curious about something, Human Dave."
HD: "What is it?"
AD: "Do you have a recommendation for alcohol that is compatible with the Cradelian physiology?"
HD: "... what?"
AD: "I find myself curious as to the sensation of intoxication, and would like to experience it myself, for scientific purposes."
HD, quietly, to himself: "'For scientific purposes', she says."
AD: "Yes. Cradelians do not imbibe ethanol in this form, nor do we normally experience intoxication in social settings. The only time a Cradelian would experience intoxication is when undergoing surgery from anaesthesia, as it has something of a narcotic effect on our physiology."
HD: "I'll tell you what: let me get over this hangover, and I'll see what I can do."
AD: "Excellent. I look forward to the experience."
AC: "Remind me again how it came to this, Human Dave."
Human Dave and Captain are carrying a thoroughly intoxicated Doctor back to the ship; one on either side of her, with her arms draped over their shoulders; her feet barely dragging along the ground.
HD: "Doctor wanted to try being drunk. So I took her to a human bar and tried out a few drinks.
AC: "..."
HD: "We found one that was weak enough not to cause any significant damage to her physiology, and she had a blast."
AC: "What is a 'blast', Human Dave?"
HD: "I meant that she enjoyed herself, Captain. She only managed two before she passed out, though. A Mojito and a vodka soda, if I remember correctly. I'm pretty sure she liked the Mojito more because of its fruity flavour."
AC: "Doctor is partial to fruits, so that is understandable."
HD: "How come you didn't try anything, Captain?"
AC: "And run the risk of poisoning myself as a result? No, thank you, Human Dave."
HD: "Then I'll just have to introduce you to some zero-alcohol drinks, Captain. They are basically the same as alcoholic drinks, only no alcohol content in them."
AC: "... that seems an acceptable alternative, Human Dave. And Doctor did seem to enjoy herself before she passed out."
HD: "A bit of sleep, and maybe a once-over with the medical scanner, and she'll be fine."
AC: "... that you even have to mention the medical scanner, even in passing, does not fill me with a sense of confidence, Human Dave."

2023.05.28 07:37 Mantis_Shrimp47 Blackberries in an Open Grave

My grandmother, Ida, loves to talk. She'll tell stories for days, but she only told me this story once, and never spoke about it again.
There’s an abandoned steel skeleton on the other side of the cemetery where Ida grew up. It used to be a cell tower, or maybe it was for power lines; there’s no way to tell now. The blackberry plants are still there, though. They twist around the places where the metal still disappears into the dirt, the beams sunk deep into the ground despite the way the whole structure has fallen sideways into the grass. The graves are in almost the same state of disrepair, with most of the names scrubbed away by the rain and the wind. But there’s one heads tone that still gleams like it did on the day it was made, the marble cast with shifting shadows from the sugar-maple tree that looms over it. Charlotte Telor is etched into it, along with beloved.
Charlotte’s mother, Ida, is eighty-three now. She can barely walk from all the cancers that have left her body weak, and she hobbles along with one hand on her husband's shoulder and one hand on mine. She kneels in front of Sharon’s tomb and prays over it, then puts down new flowers to replace the old ones. She comes here so often that the previous flowers still look almost fresh. When Ina gets up, she has a stinging nettle rash on her right knee and an oak gall stuck to her sweater.
They’d pick the blackberries, Charlotte and Ida, back when the tower was still standing proud over the cemetery. Charlotte loved to gather up a handful of berries and put one at the foot of every grave, with a pause between each to eat one herself, of course. She thought that each patch of dirt contained an angel, and she could gain their favor by feeding them. She picked up bits of tombstones and tried to fit the puzzle pieces back together, even when the graves looked like nothing more than a bare patch of dirt.
Ida goes to church every Sunday and puts her whole heart into it, singing as loud as her throat can manage, even when it hurts her. She bakes bread once a month to share at the community dinners, donates candles for Christmas service, and is generally a pillar of the Spartanburg community.
“They all came over when Charlotte died,” Ida told me. “All of my friends, every single one of them.” She didn’t spend a moment alone, and she didn’t have to cook for herself for a month. There was a collection sent around, the following Sunday, to pay for Charlotte's medical bills.
It started when Charlotte started walking around hunched over, her arms wrapped tight around her stomach. When she started vomiting and didn’t stop, Ida took her to the emergency room in their old car, rattling over the potholes at seventy miles an hour. They were sent away at the emergency room, though, because Charlotte wasn’t crying and it was busy. Another day passed. Charlotte grew more and more sick. They went back to the emergency room, and finally talked to a doctor.
The doctor looked her over, pressed on her belly, and then went silent. He picked her up and took her into the next room without a single word, except to brush off the secretary.
“They need to sign in,” the secretary said.
“No time,” the doctor answered, his voice still deathly quiet.
Ida doesn’t remember what happened after that. It’s lost to her in a haze of grief and people running. All she knows is that her baby died from a burst appendix because she was sent away the first time they went to the doctor. Charlotte was two years old. She was buried in the same cemetery that she used to hunt for blackberries in.
“She didn’t cry,” Ida said. “The whole time, she didn’t cry. The doctors told me that she must have had such a massive tolerance for pain.”
But my grandmother tells me something different.
"I saw them take her," Ida says. "The demons. They crawled out of the graves and killed Charlotte's blackberry angels."
According to Ida, she didn't cry because the demons had stuffed their claim into her mouth, gagged her on their rotting flesh and planted their poison in her.
“The God that I know is a loving God,” Ina said. "I don't know how he could let that happen. It just slipped by his notice, I guess."
She is eighty-three years old and losing a child is still the worst thing that has ever happened to her. Her confession to me, in an ashamed whisper, is that she can only keep going because she knows that she will see Charlotte again, one way or another. She's been catching glimpses of the demons out of the corners of her eyes for decades.
