As you all know, we
escaped moved from Oklahoma one and a half years ago. Shortly after our departure, (and yes, I’m sure the timing was merely coincidental) Oklahoma’s brilliant state officials erected a Ten Commandments monument on the north steps of the state capitol. Not remotely surprisingly, a group has submitted an application to erect a 7 foot satanic statue right next to it. This is the proposed design:
The description includes this: “The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.” Upon reading this (and laughing), I told Jodi, “Okay, if this goes up, the three of us have to go to Oklahoma, have our picture made on this thing and then use it as our Christmas card.” Without missing a beat, she nodded her head and responded, “Oh, absolutely.”
If anyone ever wonders why I married her, that, my friends, is why.
Happy New Year!
