Thanks for Giving?
SIRREENE! Uh oh! What is it Mom? I am wondering where we are dining tomorrow. Mom, I haven’t heard from you in awhile, that's unlike you. Usually you're contantly bothering me. Well Sirreene I’ve been right here. You’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to catch you not moving. You’re like a chipmunk storing nuts for the winter. I've been standing idly by waiting for your cheeks to explode. Thanks Mom. You know I hate winter. Nice to see you and why do you care about dinner you know that we don't need to set a place for you. You can't eat. You're de.. Of course I know Sirreene, so where are we having dinner? Nevermind that ma, remember the man I met on the airplane, The Devastator? Of course I remember, I just chose not to comment about that Sirreene. Why not Mom? You keep telling me you want me to meet someone, right? Not like that Sirreene. That type of behavior is inexcusable. Sometimes I think you do things just to upset me. That’s why I chose not to say anything. That type of behavior...well, that kills me! But Mom, you’re already de….Sirreene, what happened to that nice Amish man? I fell asleep in his buggy Mom, he was SO BORING and when I awakened it was a different century, people were driving cars, some of us were actually driving hybrids which use something called Electricity...

But I didn’t know until after we got off the plane. Nothing you can say shocks me Sirreene. This may Mom. You see he’s a…but I had no idea until later. He handed me his card and it wasn’t until I read it and then spoke with him that he confirmed it. WHAT IS IT SIRREENE? Well, again, I didn’t know. How could I? He looked regular, you know what I mean. And I am not a young boy. Sirreene? Well he’s a …Tell me already, is he a woman? Mom, you’d probably prefer that. No, he’s not a woman. Is he married, Sirreene? Mom, you know I don’t fool around with married men. He’s the only one in his family not married, and there is a good reason for that. You see he’s a….he’s a….
WHAT IS IT SIRREENE?
He’s a Priest, mom.
I think she’s finally gone! I’ll visit you this weekend Mom, it's been awhile since I've visited your grave. I hope I'll find you resting in peace.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
