|Santa's Little Helper? That's up for debate...|
So, I went to the door and saw that she had a friend with her today. They were smiling and waiting and so eager to talk. Until they saw and heard my hacking cough. The one that Just. Won't. Stop.
I opened the door mid-cough, and the main lady very quickly handed over the magazine and just wanted to know if I realized the Bible talks about Jesus being concerned with world events.
Me: "Yes (cough), I did (cough) know that (cough)".
Ladies: (slowly backing away from the front door) "Well, we just wanted to leave this for you and hope you enjoy reading it".
Me: "Wait. I have (cough) something to give you (cough), too". And I go back in to get the last two bars of ZUM soap that I have been giving out this year as Christmas goodies. I hand them over to each lady and wish them a merry Christmas.
The spearmint version--smells so very yummy
Me (again): "The scent is frankencense and myrrh, like the Wise Men brought Jesus because he was the Savior King". (hacking cough, cough, cough)
For some reason, their smiles faded quite a bit. I am not sure if it was because their beliefs don't see Jesus that way, or if they were afraid of my germs.
I bet it was the germs.
Either way, I'm sure they'll have a story to tell when someone asks them, "Well, honey, how was YOUR day today?".
