Well!

I know that the Customs people have to be nosy.

I know that they ask you odd questions to see whether you're flustered or act oddly.

However, I do think that some things are a bit beyond the pale. As, for instance, the following conversation, which occurred earlier today at the Canada/US Border.

Customs Official (CO): "Where are you headed today?"
Chris: "Back home to Indianapolis, Indiana."
CO: "Where have you been?"
Chris: "In Collingwood, Ontario."
CO: "Why?"
Chris: "For a religious festival."
CO: "Who's traveling with you today?"
Chris: "My wife and sons."
*pause*
CO: "How many more kids are you going to have?"
Chris, after a brief pause: "Probably none."
CO: "Whaaat?" *pause* "Haven't you ever heard 'be fruitful and multiply'?"
Chris: "Um, yes, we have."




In addition, we had a lovely time in Collingwood, though I wasn't able to update LJ for one reason and another. We are now home and while I am so delightedly looking forward to seeing all my nearest and dearest, my heart grieves a bit for the new nearest and dearest we've just left behind. I look forward to a time when all my brothers and sisters will be in one place.
