Went to Moira's christening today, and it was the best day I've had in a long time. Christenings are the best occasions in the universe. Funerals are awful, weddings are invariably such tense things that I find them pretty awful too. But at a christening the worst thing that you realistically expect to happen is that the kid will scream. But Moira was calm and sweet as she typically is, and she smelled like cloves the rest of the day ("Like Pier One" as her mother said). My family is usually very difficult to explain (though not as difficult to explain as I am), but today everyone was uncomplicated.
