So, the other day I was getting ready for my noon Bible study, which entails going over to the local grocery store and buying lunch (usually soup and an orange). I got to the check-out counter, where they know me almost too-well, and the older gentleman who was bagging my lunch remembered to put it in a small bag, instead of a grocery-shopping sized one.
"Well," I said, making small talk, "I considered buying a few more things besides lunch, but I changed my mind."
"You can change your mind," he said. "It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind."
"It's anyone's prerogative," I replied. "You can change you mind, too, is you want to."
He smiled. "Yes I could...... but it would be painful."
Then I drove back to the church to consider John the Baptist, and Advent.
