Reach Out & Amuse Someone

Message #1: "Darling, you know I love you, really I do, but things can't go on like this. I know you're out there keeping the streets of our fair city safe, but I'm more important than Crime or Justice, or any other ideals! - - Hello, dear. I was about to get in the shower and of course that's when you'll call me back, so I wanted you to have a nice melodramatic message to entertain you. I love you!"

Message #2:
"Hello, dearest, just a quick post script to my previous voice mail. When I mentioned ideals I meant Platonic Ideals, because crime isn't an ideal unless you're talking about Platonic Ideals - which I was. And when I say Platonic I don't mean 'friendly.' I mean that strange Greek fellow with all the odd ideas about caves. All right then, good bye."

Funny how someone ALWAYS rings just as you get in the shower!

The man's a saint to put up with you!

I know about Episcopalians because I asked Fr. J about it once when I was reading the Fr. Tim Mitford series. He described the church as 'American Anglicans', but I read up a bit myself and I think we're a lot closer than that. Anyway, Fr. J says Episcopalians are 'top people'. He says the same thing about Quakers.

Funny, he never describes Catholics as 'top people'. Well, not me, at least.
