I’m am just sitting at a new spot in J-Town thinking about how beautiful a day it is today. I’m enjoying a cold coffee with soy instead of milk and no Baileys (sure) and I’m not even high. Well, not really. A few minutes ago I was thinking about God and religion. It’s not something I think about much, but the topic came to mind as my bacon pancakes arrived at the same time a curly (Hasidic) walked by my table. I remember thinking “Jesus, this is excellent bacon.” Then I thought “How could someone be truly thankful without enjoying bacon.” I know that there are other things to be thankful for and, if I believed in such things, I would say I was blessed. But, bacon sure is good.
Then, possibly because something that was supposed to help me focus on schoolwork is causing me to over focus on other things, I wondered why I would bring the goodness of my bacon to Jesus’ attention. Don’t get me wrong; I’m a big fan of religion. If it were not for religion I would probably have to find a new job, many people who depend on the military for employment would be looking for work, and a lot of people in the weapons industry around the world would have less to do. I’m just not sure why I called upon Jesus. Maybe it’s because he used to hang out around here. However, it’s unlikely he had the bacon pancakes.
OK. I really do have stuff to do. Well, after I finish one more coffee without Baileys.
Thanks for stopping by.
