Because life is a series of edits


In Thought on June 4, 2006 at 12:07 am

Overheard at yesterday’s seminary summer kick-off picnic:

Rob (standing over grill, cooking brats): “That’s one hot fire.”

Learner (standing near Rob, helping cook brats): “Yeah, I’ve always thought burning to death would be one of the most painful ways to go.”

Rob: “Actually, they say that after the first minute, all your nerve endings are singed, so you don’t feel anything.”

Learner: “Who’s ‘they?'”

Rob: “I don’t know.”

Learner: “That first minute would be pretty long and painful.”

Rob: “Yep.”

Somehow neither of these two seem ready for martyrdom.
