Anti-parental trump card!

My mother's been irritated with me for my agnostic phase for a good three years now. She still asks me to work in her little Christian bookshop of a Sunday, which I grudgingly do, somehow she tries to make me feel guilty when I try to weasel out or otherwise claim not to want to go.

But now I've decided to start attending services at the Unitarian church, which I self-evidently can't do when working at her bookstore.

Last night she asked *again* for me to take over for two sundays this month. I said I could, but I didn't want to, so she started laying on the mother-guilt, "This isn't just a favor, this is for my career, so I can make my life better."

"But...I was going to go to church."

"Oh."

Hee hee...not that I delight in suffering or anything, but it's nice to have a guilt card that she can't POSSIBLY argue with.

Hmmm, excuse me, but a Christian Bookstore open on Sunday? What ever happened to the whole "not working on the Sabbath, day of rest" thingy?

Little 'ole me is just a money grubbing pagan, so I stay open 7 days a week of course.

Yeah, well, that one we ignore. Actually, it's "remember the sabbath, and keep it holy." So I'm guessing she has a checkmark by the register: Sunday [Holy, check]. The one we get more often is the "money-changing in the temple." That's a hard one to answer.

So are you going to the church church thing, or the pagan meeting thing?

Pagan meeting thing, which is why I came there in the first place. You can actually do both, there's a later service.

Smoo!
