Good Morning Tempest Torn,
As if life’s rich pageant couldn’t get any worse, I’ve been flummoxed as to why a lid is covering the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding hurricane prone areas. Here we have Dv’ant hunkered down on the Gulf side of Florida and all the hurricane’s are veering off harmlessly into the mid-Atlantic. THIS IS NOT FAIR!! There is absolutely no interest in hearing about Dv’ant’s misadventures in a trivia bar, wearing his goofy hat and black socks with dress shoes; wearing the regulars out in trivia. Further nobody cares about the Red Snapper that slid off the hook. Riding out a category five (5) hurricane is the only thing that would warrant interest in his vacation. Is that too much to ask?? Are we not deserving of this!? Most certainly Dv’ant is! Once again this negative response to my prayers reinforces my agnostic tendencies. God has seen fit to spare him this drama thus cheating the rest of us out of a great story and human tragedy.
Maybe collectively we haven’t displayed the kind of faith necessary to convince God to smite the Devious One. C’mon now, everyone pitch in and get down on your knees and join with me in prayer to send the ‘Big One’ his way. Amen.
