The skull is actually the exact same as Stede Bonnet. I used his flag (and Calico Jack's) as the base.
I appreciate the feedback though--I may try and clean that up, though my art skills are... Lackluster at best?
Oh no, it still sucks. But he seems to have learned, and tonight we had a nearly 4 hour chat about everything BUT Sudan (work has us come in, and do nothing for 4 hours while the factory is under repairs). He's a great guy, so yeah, it's not fine, but it's fine, ya know what I mean? lol
Oh, he meant nothing by it--he's just... Well, he has no tact. I'm doing much better, and I'm in a better place. Basically, I ended up telling him "I've been married nearly 12 years, and I literally last week started to open up to my wife about this stuff." He got the message!
Oh I know-the wrong smell, the wrong sounds, any of that can trigger me. This instance of depression was brought about by a coworker who'd just found out I lived in Sudan during the Darfur Genocide's early days. All kinds of questions I didn't want to ever think about again... Ah well, I'm good...
I just had my first real fire. Dad made burgers for lunch and the grill caught fire. He tried to get water but I told him you should never put water on a grease fire. So I got him the fire extinguisher under the sink and we managed to put it out. I can still smell a little of the smoke coming from the patio, but at least it's clearing. It sure was scary though.
