So, I’m walking my little dog, and we come across a big pile of dog poop; apparently deposited there recently. While my dog is sniffing at it, I think how gross it is, just lying there, stinking. Then it speaks to me. It says, “Do I disgust you?”
“Well, yes,” I replied, rather surprised that excrement could talk. The latest symptom of my creeping senility, I suppose. “Yes you do disgust me, very much.”
“Good, for that is my purpose. I am set apart to cause revulsion.”
“It is my sacred calling to be the obnoxious distraction in your life, your impetus to stop and change course. For I am the Holy Shit.”
“Okay.” I waited a few seconds for a reply, but none came. “Is that it, then?” Still nothing.
So I scooped it up into my doggie poo bag and tossed it in the trash. I may not be very religious, but I am tidy. Other than that, not much going on here. How is your day so far?
