so the poet puts it away quickly and has to cuddle courf and tell him really lame jokes to calm him down
But see, there’s this thing where Aramis is sort of the go-to guy whenever people are ill or injured which sometimes is a big deal involving blood and stitches and other times is Porthos turning up at his door:
"Aramis, I am dying."
"You have a cold."

Mysterious Coin-Covered Wishing Trees
The strange phenomenon of gnarled old trees with coins embedded all over their bark has been spotted from the Peak District to the Scottish Highlands in the United Kingdom. One of the larger collections can be seen in the picturesque village of Portmeirion in Wales where there are seven felled tree trunks with coins pushed into them.
The coins are usually knocked into the tree trunks using stones by passers-by, who hope it will bring them good fortune. These fascinating spectacles often have coins from centuries ago buried deep in their bark, warped from the passage of time.
The tradition of making offerings to deities at wishing trees dates back hundreds of years and is similar to the concept of a “wishing well”, where one tosses a coin in for good luck. The “wishing trees” date back to the early 1700s in Scotland where ill people stuck florins into trees with the idea that the trees would take any any illness. However if someone were to take away any of the coins, legend states that they will become ill instead.
This is so incredibly wonderful.I am going to start doing this.
In which class privileges are continuously ignored.
Often times, I go through posts that talk about so and so privileges and discuss them to try and give readers and bloggers a better understanding of what those privileges are and how they can contribute to the society we live in right now.
However, I have not seen a single major post about class privilege. Class privilege, by far, is one of the most prominent privileges one could have. Yet we do not have enough posts discussing these privileges that come with being upper-middle class or upper class. We do not have posts discussing how class privilege is crucial, as it is something that can deeply contribute to children’s educations and future. Nor do we see class privilege being talked about enough to be singled out without people contributing it to white people.
However, class privilege is more than a white people thing, it’s something that can be seen by many folk all around the world. Class privilege is increasingly becoming much more important than ideas of racial privileges, and taking into account that there is an increasing number of emerging “upperclass millionaires” in Asia, as a continent, provides a deep insight on how the game is shifting into boundaries of money.
Of course, some of you would ask me how would I know how class privilege is becoming much more prevalent than other privileges. The reason I know this is because I am brown and I have that privilege. I have the privilege to go to the Champs and buy myself as many materialistic items as I want without worrying much about the price. I have the privilege to have people serving me everywhere I go if I present myself properly with the privilege I was born into. I go into a famous and expensive department store and if people hear my last name and immediately recognise the class in which I belong to, and go ahead cater to my every need while other less privileged shoppers will have to wait for a while or even sometimes ignored. I get so many benefits that allow me not to experience many hardships, even at a passive aggressive level, because of my class and status.
Yet nobody talks about such things. Nobody talks about class privilege, and the statuses you get and earn while being up there with the upper-middle class and upper-class communities. But then it hits me… A lot of the bloggers here have the same privilege in a way - they have enough class privilege to get them ahead. You have some bloggers going into ivy league universities and being of racially diverse backgrounds but are quite well off and comfortable. Yet they seem to complain about so many hardships while ignoring the most prominent privilege that we have: Class privilege.
That’s not to say white privilege doesn’t exist anymore, but don’t try to mask the fact that many of us are relatively privileged for being put into a certain class. Whether we earned it or were born into it, it is not fair that we point other privileges when we forget the most troublesome of all - class.
