I Have Been Redeemed of my Fire and Brimstone Past

This morning, while Jet, my seven-year-old son who has been in Sunday School nearly every Sunday since he was two, was looking at a comic in the newspaper:

Jet: Hey, dad, why are there all these flames and stuff?
Dad: Uhm... I guess that's the Devil and they're in Hell...
Jet: What the heck is Hell?

As our pastor said, rather apologetically, "The UCC has never been all that good at the sin and hell stuff."

My doom has finally befallen me...

I mailed Gabe's gloves this morning (along with a bunch of other packages, but that's not as cool a story) and I now have John's cold.

It was inevitable... as inevitable as the falling of a cherry blossom's petal...

Yeah, yeah, I'm taking it as a perfect excuse to drink soup, sleep, and play Okami to my heart's content.

And, no, really, you don't have to feel sorry for me. *laughs*
