Today's Nursery Rhyme

Pussy cat, pussy cat
wilt thou be mine? 
Thou shalt not wash dishes
nor yet feed the swine, 
but sit on a cushion 
and sew a fine seam
and feed upon strawberries, 
sugar and cream. 

I used to love this nursery rhyme as a kid. I told my dad that I wanted to "feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream" but I wasn't so keen on "sewing a fine seam". He assured me that such a life of luxury was unrealistic. I still don't like doing dishes (or sewing)!

I know a great place to get strawberries and cream. When we get together next perhaps I'll take you there. And I can sew a seam, but it's not always pretty. Still works though.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
