You *should* expect to take the SCA home with you!
I agree completely!
I have tried to live these ideals in my life since I was very young. These
things were all a part of my everyday way of living long before I ever knew
the SCA existed, and I have found the same in many of my friends in the
People do seem to live up, or down, to our expectations and in the society
our expectations are high! I have found that the folks I know who live up to
the highest expectations don't turn these good qualities on and off at will.
It either always was, or has become, who and what they are.
It is sometimes good to remember that you get what you give. If you show
others honor, respect, chivalry, and all the good things that go with them,
you will likely receive the same.
