Mind blowing

Published February 4, 2015 by Lunapo

Last night, I ran out to grab some orange juice from my local food king. I’m dealing with a head cold and orange juice makes me feel better, even if it is just a placebo effect.

I headed for the back of the store, the refrigerated dairy section, when a young man approached me.

“I am conducting a survey.”

“Ok.” I like to talk about myself πŸ˜‰

“Are you over 18?”

“Yup.” By eleven years despite how I look.

“Do you believe in the Bible?”

“Nope.” Oh, one of these guys…

“May I ask why not?”

“I’m Pagan”

“Oh. Oh… Oh!!”


It was really amusing watching recognition of what I said come across his face.

“Well…can I interest you in…” His voice was shaken and all of his confidence was visibly gone.

“No thank you.”

Now back to my quest for orange juice.

  • Haha. I’ve shocked a few Jehova witnesses. I find it very enjoyable. I’ll see them coming down the road and get my incense and candles going and get on my cape and pentacle and ready to open the for. They stare for a bit and then give me their speech. I’ll then open the door wider to show off my altars and tell them I’m a witch. The fear on their faces gives me so much joy!

  • Good for you! πŸ™‚ I’m glad that you both came away from the encounter none the worse for wear. Just knowing this guy met a pagan and neither of you didn’t burst into flames gives me hope for the world. I’m sure that meeting a confident pagan rattled his world view a bit.

  • This made me giggle… when I lived in the Triangle, many moons ago… I was a member of one of “Those Churches.” That sort of response would have had the same effect on me, back in the day. How things do change, eh? πŸ˜‰
