...the flesh is weak. As an aside, best friend Louisiana thinks that quote is hilarious each time I say it--I've heard it in church for decades now, so I don't get her amusement.
Anyway, I don't know what the hell my dad has signed up for, but we now get Blender, Forbes, the NYT, and some hunting and fishing magazines. I asked him a while back, "Blender?" "I don't know," he said.
So, today there's a card in the mail. He looks at it, laughs, and reads to me, "12 issues for $12."
"Mmm," I say. He smiles again. "I could take that," he says, "But I don't suppose the good Lord wants me to." "What is it?" I ask.
"Well," I say, "God probably wants you to stay informed. Lots of people read it for the articles."
My daddy laughed in my face, y'all.
