Today while in the Post Office in Williamsport, after a seminar, while standing in line at the stamp machine...
There was a small group of african-american teenage girls in line for sending packages. They were yakking it up and having a good old time, when a clergyman walked in. He was wearing a Roman collar.
One of the girls asked, "What are you Amish?"
He replied boastfully, "No, the Amish are pacifists, Lutherans are not! I'm Lutheran!"
I would have laughed at the sheer ridiculousness of asking a man in Roman collar if he was Amish. But his comment left me unable to laugh or speak. Enjoy the feeling.
