Have You Found The Gods?

| Religion, Strangers

(Where I live we don’t often get people in the street trying to convert you to their religion, so when a random woman walks up to me one day I assume that she’s lost and that the pamphlet in her hand is a map.)

Woman: “Hi.”

Me: “Hi. Can I help?”

Woman: “Do you have a moment to talk about Jesus?”

Me: “Uh, no, thanks. I’m kind of on my way somewhere.”

Woman: “All you need to do is open your heart! When was the last time you took ten minutes off your day to reflect and pray?”

Me: “Last night, actually.”

Woman: “Oh! But before that?”

Me: “The night before. I pray every day.”

Woman: “Wow. I guess you’re all good, then. If only more people were like you! God bless you!”

Me: “Gods bless you, too.”

Woman: “Sorry?”

Me:Gods bless you. I’m a Hellenic polytheist.”

Woman: *backs away slowly*
