Stand aside...or you might get hit by lightening

I ended up sending Rex an email last night warning him of my comments (see the post below)... I came to work and talked about it with Larry (who also used to live in Oklahoma). He asked if I remembered living in Oklahoma. Yes...I vaguely do. And he was all, "um...yeah. People probably found that offensive." But I guess I felt okay still because it wasn't like I am Kathy Griffin and I told Jesus to "Suck It." I don't think that what I wrote was blasphemous...just more casual than what we're used to reading in the Bible.

Anyway, I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I called him at lunch. My call went straight to voicemail...which I thought was a bad sign. He called back and I talked to him... he said that he took the comments down. Apparently he thought they were funny, but he knew that the old ladies wouldn't. And he asked me the same question that Larry did...which was: were you drinking?

(sigh)


The answer is NO. And like I told my friend Rachel, I'm proud of that. It takes TALENT to comment about Jesus without drinking. And where did I get that talent from? It was a GIFT FROM GOD.

So you called an ex at lunch to ask about his facebook? That is dedication :)

Well, yeah. It's not dedication...just consideration.

Besides...he's a great friend. It's like he's friend first, ex second.

I just wanna say ... you make me laugh ALOT!! ... in all your many quirky thoughts and words ... I wouldn't change a thing, even if I could!! :-) Keep on being you!! (But I can understand you thinking about someone else's sensibilities (?) if that's the word I am looking for ... and that's also because you are YOU!)

Ok, so YOU rock and plus? Are awesome. I would laugh until I cried if I got a big old long comment from you like that.

What's with people? I am sure I don't know. But you're tops in my book.

And? That last line CRACKED me up.

See you tomorrow!!!

OK, so I'm born and raised in Oklahoma and I thought that was funny as HELL!!! Then again, I've always wanted to get out of Oklahoma so maybe I'm different (well I guess we knew that). By the way - REX HAS A FACEBOOK!!! Why is that funny to me?
