Overheard: Some Short Elijahlogues

Scene One
Overheard while sitting next to E while he tries to dodge the dragon that is firebombing his race car on (everybody sing!) hotwheelsDOTCOM.
"I dont care about that guy. All I want to do is LIVE."

Scene Two
Overheard 26 minutes after the one scene in a ridiculous romantic comedy that included (everybody sing!) rockandROLLmusic!
::walking out of the room, shaking head in disgust::
"I only like the awesome parts."

Scene Three
Overheard phone conversation with pal Sarah.
"Knock knock!.....What!......What what?"

Scene Four
Overheard while doing that thing with new shiny white Christmas-present dominoes where you place them close together in a row on their narrow end, hoping to knock them down and make a cool thing happen. (Isn't there a shorter name for that game?)
"These look like the gates to Heaven! There are so many of them!"

That last one'll preach, I think. Also, the song we've been hearing a lot (and by a lot, I mean about 70 times a day) around here lately "Peace on earth and mercy wild...."

Yeah, he's pretty great these days. Now if only we could do something about this problem of weeping and gnashing of teeth whenever we have to go somewhere or come back from somewhere.

Excellent child!
As an addendum to his take on "hark the herald" may I offer my lapse during Evening Prayer last year
"Mercy and Truth are met together
Righteousness and Peace have KILLED each other".
Well, it was a kind of long Advent...

more cows than people said...
