  • Tomorrow I will unexpectedly encounter an old acquaintance. They'll expound experiences and sum up that they have found their GOD. I'll smile and feel elated for them. Having finished their very detailed explanation of their discovery they'll ask me "What do you know about God." I'll say quite bluntly as i tend to do in conversation "Oh, of God, I know nothing." A frown pasted on their face they'll "hmm I see" thinking me a fool or an atheist, a marxist or some such thing. Just about that time a seagull will come along and shit all over their shiny new materialists dream of a car. I'll "hmm" and frown. "Perhaps God's found you" I'll say" "And what he sent a bird to shit on my car?" "No, ofcourse not, maybe you shouldnt give a shit what I think, maybe I do know one thing. It's good to be humble." Later in the afternoon while baking a lemon cake I'll wonder if they took a long lunch in order to drive straight to the carwash for that premuim wash.
