A whole year for St. Paul?!


....ПОЧЕМУ? I only need a half hour or so with him. I just want to know:

1) Dude, did you have an older sister who used to regularly beat the snot out of you? It would explain so much.

2) How much did you charge per tent?

3) So what's the real story? Fell off the horse and hit your head? Or one of the other versions?

4) Did you secretly laugh yourself silly when the guy you told to go circumcise himself actually did? Were you nice enough to at least send him an ice pack?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Karen, you know, I was sort of thinking the same thing. Prolific letter writer and all, I am sure today he would be a blogger, no doubt, but an entire year?! And it somewhat eclipsed the honor today due to my favorite, St. Peter.

You are hifreakinlarious!

(I expect my brother-in-law, the Archangel, to leave some snarky comment here . . .)

1. No, I was not so "blessed" (THANK GOD!)

2. As much as the market would bear.

3. I take the 5th (preferably bourbon, but I'll take wry too).

4. No, I lined his jock strap with Ben-Gay.

I KNEW Mike would not disappoint!

ROTFL! you guys. We do know Paul had a nephew...but I always wondered if he had a sister that beat him up. Mark, I love number 4 - that's got to be a guy thing!

ArchAngel's Advocate said...

He might have had a brother who was married...

The Digital Hairshirt said...

Michael! How can you talk about Beth . . . er, Chrissy . . . er, what's the latest one's name? Um . . . Kim! Yeah, Kim! How can you talk about Kim that way?!

Karen, Michael is my brother-in-law, Mark is my husband, and there is another Richer brother who has married three times (that's Matt). Michael, then Mark, then Matt - all born to their mom, Mary. Go on, guess what letter their father's name began with!

Michael's LAST comment CERTAINLY could not have been a reference to me!

I thought we were dicussing St. PAUL'S family!!!

gemoftheocean said...

Digi, see what happens when you name all your kids with the same first letter?!

I bet it must have been fun around the house when one of them did something and a parent got flustered... "Matt, er Mark er ...Mike..STOP THAT .what is your name, boy, don't lie to me, because you live here and I found out.?"

BTW, tip on how to get bounced from a prominent priest's blog: ask him nicely, what parish he's ever been the pastor of. Some people (not ever on my blogroll, have awfully thin skin!!!) I think he and Paul are related.

God knows, if I'd been Paul's housekeeper, I'd have starched his jockey shorts. He'd have gotten a rash from just sitting. A case of Cruex wouldn't have helped.

Oh Karen please!!

gemoftheocean said...

Jackie, like Paul couldn't find some guy who HAD been Jewish to go talk to those guys? C'mon. I think when the guy fell off the horse a screw or two came loose!

An entertaing blog!

I know a woman who has six kids, four boys in a row, then two girls. Their names:
Matthew
Mark
Luke
John
Mary
Elizabeth

It would be interesting if Father Z was your parish priest and you had starched his shorts. I wonder how that revelation would've gone over in the confessional :) You might be doing penance for a veryyyy long time! Do priests have to recuse themselves? Can you imagine the irony if he was ever sent to your parish. God does have a sense of humor!

gemoftheocean said...

Swiss, at best it would be a venial sin and I wouldn't bother confessing that one in the box. ;-D I think the only way I'd use him as a confessor was if we were both in a car that had gone over a cliff and on the way down I *might* *might* if I'm not ticked off at him ask for absolution.

gemoftheocean said...

BTW, a priest *would* have to recuse himself if it was a sin against the 6th commandment. Fat chance.
