What We Are Not
It is said that first impressions last. Have you ever heard something someone thought of you that was totally off base?
My wife once worked in an office where the word was that she and I didn’t celebrate Christmas because we were very religious fundamentalists that believed that Jesus wasn’t born in December. The truth is that we are both Atheists and we don’t buy into all that Christmas stuff.
Another woman I know once told me that she heard that I volunteer and counsel young widows in my church, and that my wife doesn’t like it in the least. This one is funny on so many levels, first because I been a member of a church since I was 12 years old, next because I can’t imagine a congregation that has a guild of young widows that need counseling. My mother is the only widow that I actually know.
I’ve often been called a Canadian Expatriate when in fact I am a New Jersey Expatriate. Though I do hope to be an American Expatriate living in Canada some day.
How do people come up with this stuff?
