Brave New World

12:02 am · category: Uncategorized

Today is Easter, and what with the Resurrection and the egg imagery and the sense of renewal, I thought it might be a nice time for a little something new in my life. Hence, the blog. Let’s hope this goes well.

Today, before church services started, my pastor did his usual pre-service greeting bit and stopped by to shake my hand. As he did, he said, “Your hair’s all out of place. Didn’t you brush it this morning?” Temporarily taken aback by his brazen rudeness, I nevertheless managed to respond, “Ummm, no, I didn’t. I don’t ever brush my hair because it’s curly.” He sort of eyed me and then said, “Well, you should look at it. It’s really messed up.” I was totally pissed off at first, but I ultimately decided that Jesus must like my hair, what with my being made in God’s image and all.
