A Real Conversation

Mom: Nico, in a half-hour let's go shopping.
Dad: No.
Mom: Why not?
Dad: I cannot.
Mom: Why not?
Dad: It's not possible.
Mom: (sigh) Why not?
Dad: Aren't you forgetting something?
Mom: Oh, Jesus: the guessing game.

The thing Mom was forgetting was that Dad had to go to church. She had to ask me to get the right answer.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall posses the land.
Blessed are the elusive: for they shall ... well, you'll see.
