Laugh for today

A Saturday funk, with a stomach not wanting to cooperate so I decided to read my Docudharma. But the wolves were not helping my mood.

I was answering ek hornbeck when my doorbell rang. My creaky old bones rise and stagger to the door…”why would someone ring a bell at my place at 10 AM on a Sat?”  “Don’t they know I’m cranky?”

I open the door and there are two, nicely dressed people…one a youngish(younger than me), slender woman in a brown trench/raincoat and the other was a young boy (HS age) in a suit carrying a Bible.  Then there is me….gray, frizzy hair, pajama pants, and a green t-shirt. The t-shirt says: “i used to be a Druid but I was excommunicated.”

The woman gives me a suprized look as she opens her mouth…then she laughs and points at my shirt. “That’s funny”, she says. I look at the Bible and figure, I don’t have time for this.

“Yes,” I reply, “Thankyou, but I am not interested. Go someplace else.”

As I start to close the door she says, “But we have some inspirational things to share with you!”

“That’s all right, someone else will like them.”

So, I go down to Mr. Temmoku who is doing his exercises. “Who was at the door? Some religious group?” He can tell from my face.  I just nod and point to my t-shirt. We both laugh and I feel so much better now. What great timing! I love this shirt!

Have a great Saturday!

    I’m surprised the woman laughed though.  😉

  1. on a Saturday morning, and I would stumble out in a t-shirt and pajamas. Nothing against them. Nice, well-mannered people. But they were wasting their time and mine. Felt like I should keep a copy of Marx or Bakunin in the front hall so that when they knocked and I opened the door I could hold up the Communist Manifesto and say, “Have you heard the good news?”

    always after me. They would even tell me, “We devoted part of our prayer circle to you,” as if this would be just the ticket to win me over. With all their effort, I often wondered if they would get extra points or something for converting a little, brown, Filipina-Zoroastrian-American.  

  2. posting a pentagram on the front door.  Since it went on

    several years ago not one JW or Mormon has dared knock on the door.  Perhaps they fear logic??

  3. whereby a Druid can be excommunicated!

  4. and also for letting us get to know you a little better!!!
