You know what's awkward? 2

Congregants at a Protestant service or gathering where the Apostles' Creed is being said.  When you get to "I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church," lots of people trail off.   It's like, "the holy ca-wait, what?" and then cue any personal anti-Catholic triggers.  Lower-c catholic, people, but thanks.

You know what's awkward?

An over-exuberant, celebratory man picking up a not-expecting-to-be-picked-up woman.  Whether she's wearing a dress, skirt, or pants, all I end up seeing is the woman trying to keep her bottom covered up/whale-tail from showing while trying not to ruin the moment.

Example of Love's Infinity

"A mother loves the baby she has yet to bear — not the abstract idea of a baby, mind you, but her particular, future baby, shrouded in the mystery of who, precisely, he will be, but nevertheless loved as himself and no other."
