In which Tama takes that nerve that he unintentionally struck and then starts jabbing it repeatedly with a whiny, tantrum fork. Because Tama is a three-time Champion Annoyance. As voted by every nanny that ever had the unfortunate position of taking care of him growing up.
Honey is actually an ancient tradition that goes way beyond Visionary teachings. However, it’s so engrained in the culture that when Visionaries began to spread, they adopted it into their own funeral rites. Speaking of Visionaries, if you look on this page you can see that Dr. Milan is wearing a necklace with a round symbol on it. It’s the same symbol you see on the shoulders of the guard’s uniforms, and is a sign of the Visionary church. So there may be a reason Dr. Milan’s calm is broken by Tama’s rather blasphemous ranting.
Have you ever pushed somebody’s buttons without realizing it? I remember once in high school I was talking to a girl about the frustration of having a name that was also associated with something else. Robin = Robin bird, Batman and Robin, Red Robin, Rockin’ Robin, etc. *shudders* I’ve always been terrible with names, and always been very insecure about it. At some point she commented about how having the name “Robin” was nothing compared to how bad it was to have her particular last name. Naturally, I had no idea what her last name was. In desperation I looked around for a clue and saw her name on a paper she’d just been handed back. “Yeah,” I said, drawing out the word to stall as I desperately translated her handwriting into a name while reading it upside-down. “I sure would hate to be named…uh…Camp…Bell.”
And then I died of shame.
I only pray she has completely forgotten it entirely. Which she probably has. I hope.
