J1 and I are friends in real life and we work in the same building so you’d think that after putting up with me for most of the day he would’ve had his fill, but sometimes we’ll end up chatting about the big issues of the universe over instant messaging and we end up with conversations like this one about a new computer case he ordered the other day:
JethricOne: *sigh* Estimated delivery for the case is still Friday 🙁
StupEvilBst: Keep the faith. Sometimes they arrive early.
StupEvilBst: And you’re a good guy and God loves you so I don’t see why it shouldn’t.
JethricOne: True. I’m sure that the benign creator of all things is waiting for my personal request to speed up the Fed Ex ground shipment of my case.
JethricOne: Especially since I was willing to discuss his existence with Mild Bill and Brock.
StupEvilBst: Com’on, considering some of the ridiculous requests he gets and the relative happiness you’d have if he fulfilled it, why the hell WOULDN’T he toss that in as a small Bennie.
JethricOne: True, I didn’t even get a lottery ticket, and that line for prayer fulfillment is probably way-long anyway.
JethricOne: Take the easy requests first.
StupEvilBst: Indeed. It’s a small thing, doesn’t take much divine power and you’d be so damned happy it’s almost ridiculous to think about it.
StupEvilBst: If I were God those would be practically gimmes on a regular basis.
