Is today the day?

This afternoon I'm going to the mall to the AT&T store to get a new phone and data plan. But it occurred to me, today's supposed to be the rapture. What if I commit myself to a two-year plan and then get sucked up to heaven with Jesus?

I don't really think that's too likely. Although I'm a Christian and work at a church part time, I'm not convinced the rapture is today. And even if it is, I'm not sure my faith is strong enough to get me into the in-crowd of followers.

I just read an article about a guy who's pulled in $35,000 from true believers in exchange for promising to take care of their pets when they go to heaven. Enterprising guy. And how are they assured he'll still be around? Because he and his employees swear that they're atheists. And if that's not enough, they commit blasphemy to prove it.

I guess it takes all kinds.

Anyway, I'm heading out for the mall now. If I go to heaven, I probably won't care about the phone bill anyway. I just hope those left on earth for the 5 months of hell, complete with fire and brimstone, won't have to worry about it either.

So bye, all. Maybe for the day, maybe forever.

Stay tuned... :)

  2. Could you pop into the Amish Farmer's Market on the way and pick me up something evil, like a fresh donut? Skip the angel food cake. I hear they're a little off today, eh.

    I'll be scraping crud off the kitchen floor, so you might have to knock loudly when you get back, k?

    Pleaseandthankyou. :)

  3. We promise to take care of Mr T the evil turtle for you. That is, if he isn't snapping chunks out of us as part of the Tribulations that will follow the Rapture. I don't really want to have to feed him my own fingers as punishment for my preference for zumba over church on Sunday mornings.
