I like sleeping late on weekends. I don't normally get to bed til about three o'clock in the morning most days, and I got to get up early most weekdays. Well, I don't got to, but when the school buses come by, it wakes me up.
Anyway, on Saturday mornings since there ain't no school buses, I get to sleep in. And sleep it off.
But this past Saturday, there come a knock on the door. Me and the old lady looked at each other and wondered who in the world it coulda been. Since she didn't move, and since they kept beating on the door, I found me the cleanest t-shirt on the floor and put it on. I grabbed me a pair of dungarees and slid them on too, then stepped over the pizza boxes and went to the front door.
I moved the curtain aside and there was this fellow standing there just a smiling. There was a Dodge van in the yard with three other folks inside.
I opened the door. Big mistake.
He started talking about how bad this country was going down the road to hell and did I have a sense that something was missing and something else, but I warn't fully awake so I don't know what all he said.
I stood there, needing to go pee real bad, shifting from one leg to the other. I nodded with him on most of what he said, agreeing with much of it.
He ended up leaving me a copy of the Watchtower and thanking me. And then left quickly. Probably because I had farted.
Then he got back in the van and they headed back to the road to go visit someone else.
I told the old lady and she got onthe phone and started to calling all the neighbors to warn them. Some had to get the kids to the back of the house so they wouldn't answer the door. Others had to run out the back when the Jehovah's Witnesses got to the front porch. Others untied the dogs.
Anyway, I'm not making fun of the Jehovah's Witnesses. They have a good sense of right and wrong. You dont' usually got to worry about one of them knocking over a liquor store or robbing a bank. So I aint't got nothing bad to say about them.
I don't agree with everything they preach. Like Heaven will take 144,000. No more, no less.
But I could be wrong on that point and they could be right. About the 144,000. Cause I know they got that many. That's how many Jehovah's Witnesses have knock on my front door in the last six months.
