To Keep You Busy

I leave you for the weekend with a choice of two entertainments: First, on, The Grownups Wanted Us Dead:

When we were in Yakima, Caryl bought me a pair of HASH jeans. I was 17 years old and had never owned a pair of blue jeans, and even in my wildest dreams would never have thought I might own a designer pair. She also bought me this cute little striped t-shirt that clung like skin, a pair of chunky platform high-heels, and then she gave me the "Farrah Fawcett" hair-cut. It was like being transformed into a movie star. I looked good and I knew it.
And second, on Matthew 28:19:
You could just be sitting somewhere, minding your own business, when out of the blue your life changes drastically. You see it coming, try to stop it, but that [snap] fast, it's out of your control.
At least that's how it happened to me.

Every Biblical prophet's initiation story begins the same way:

Cindy -- And I find him a little more amazing every day.

OC -- at least I don't argue with burning bushes. And -- you're the one who inspired me to write this story. If I'm Moses would that make you Aaron?

You're not clumsy, your pants are just too tight.

When God speaks it is always best to listen. He always gets is way.

Nessa -- hmmm, pants haven't been too tight in years ... still clumsy.

And I always listen to God when he speaks -- my trouble is more one of talking back ....
