So I'm about 1/4 of the way through one of my long-winded, serious thoughtful posts. This one's about the theology of George W. Bush as it relates to his foreign policy. It's inspired by two articles
in Christianity Today. It's shaping up to be a good post and I hope I finish it.
But for now......a story:
I have today off of work because it's Columbus Day. Yes, only the federal government celebrates freakin' Columbus Day anymore, but let's leave that be.
I exit the movie theater having finally seen 3:10 to Yuma
. I am contemplating the motives of Russell Crowe's character, Ben Wade. I am wondering what to think of the film's final moments. I open my cell phone to call Christy about her doctor's appointment.
I press the button on the key to unlock our Honda Civic and get inside. Then I notice a bunch of classical music CDs. I don't own any classical music CDs.
At this very moment, I remember that I came to the movie in my Nissan Altima, not Christy's Civic. I look up to see a middle-aged couple staring at me wondering why I just sat down in the driver's seat of their Civic.
To get the full humor of the moment, you probably have to have been there and witnessed how red my face got.
Let's call this post, Humor in Humiliation....part 2 of a series in Ben's life. Part 1
was about a year ago.
