it was nice as hell today so I decided I was going to do some benching down by the river before I had to go to work. There's nothing like being out in the nice weather near the train tracks with my camera checking out the graffiti on the freights. I was hoping to meet up with a friend of mine but our paths never crossed. That's probably all for the better though because then I would have had to hang up my 'fun' jacket and put on my 'work' jacket and make my way to work leaving behind the great weather for the sterile insides of a building with few windows. As I was making my way to my car a man, looking a lot like a younger Fidel Castro, approached me and asked me if I went to college. After about a minute or so of talking he made it clear to me that God was going to have something to do with this conversation. My hopes of some nice philosophical conversation were dashed when he began to say that he was not going to bring religion in this yet he continued to push it, albeit in a poorly attempted covert way, on me. By this time I was anxious to look at my cell phone to check the time but I didn't have to because he watch caught my eye. "Shit!", I thought. "It's 4:20 already." I had to be at work at 5 and I always left at around 4:30. This was beginning to be a waste of my time. To make a long story short, I ended up praying with him because otherwise I would have had to stay around and listen to how I was wrong in assuming that the possibility of a higher being could not be proven or disproved; in his mind not only did a higher being, God as he called it, exist, but he could prove it to me. He told me this and I was a little interested in just how he could prove it to me, but I had to get to work. He said "I know that God exists, without a shadow of a doubt and I could literally show you but we don't have time for that right now, because you need to get to work." That was convenient. I guess I am going to hell. I was about 15 minutes late. Thanks God. ;]
