Jingle all the way - pt II

So last night, in Strasbourg, I was invited with a colleague to eat dinner at a customer's house.

The customer is a lovely guy, with a big family and he is also deeply religious.

We took our places at the dinner table and were instructed to hold hands in order to pray.

I held hands with my German colleague to the right, and the sixteen year-old daughter of the customer to the left of me. As the customer prayed in German and then in French, all I could think about was one thing.

The pierced scrotum.

Am I going to hell?

Sounds ghastly - like some sort of catholic eurovision party! As for the hell part, I guess I'll see you there :-)

It looks like it'll be more fun down there anyway, big C. And trust me, it was ghastly...

Yes you are going to hell, with bells on.

Now you and I both know that all gays ask the same question.

But this time I sense that it's asked differently - is it not?

Um....I'd say - you're a bit of a lech. Lovely. You're on my team then.

I think you are in shock.

I also think you are going to Hell................probably see you there.

You know the more religions focus on portraying sex as a bad thing, the more you're going to focus on it in religious settings. Just like people telling you 'don't think about ice cream when you're at the beach'.

Oh and in my view, hell was just invented by religions to have some sort of punishment/oppression system in place. Quite a lot of people put up with suffering for their religion just so they won't go to hell - you have to credit the people who thought of that system...

My Gran used to say I don't want to go to heaven because I won't know anyone. Just caught up on this and part one I knew I could rely on you to cheer me up

Daryl, some of us dream of a second coming too. Alas with age comes lack of commitment...ha ha

Sweary - ding dong! here I come!!

Aims, hell looks liek the fun option. I've met some of those people who reckon they're going to heaven....five minutes with them is usually enough, let alone an eternity!

KP, I'll be at the bar.

marjolein, organised religion amazes me full stop. and scares me.

But each to his own - I can see how it can work for other people.

Louise a dit…

Honey, if you're going to hell, then I'm coming along with you because I'll be laughing at everything you're saying that is taking you there. And I'll keep following for more laughter.

And I'm just going to make a little guess that the 16-year-old girl was blushing at the privilege of holding your hand. Her thoughts were not about a pierced scrotum!

Vm "those balls were just holeÿ..." classy comment.

I like it!

Breezy, not sure I'd know anyone there either!

CawfeeGuy a dit…

if the road to hell is certainly paved with the piecred scrotums of hot frenchmen, then i say skip down the lane and enjoy the journey.

Cawfeeguy, wise words indeed...
