Saturday

A pair of Jehova's Witnesses left my doorstep just now, one of them having promised to read Atlas Shrugged. It took about 20 minutes. He may never read it - I have no idea how seriously Witnesses take such promises - but if not, he may just keep wondering whether he should.

The one before that was a 17 year old kid, a few months ago. He told me, after more than an hour, that I was a good teacher. To which I responded "that's the best way to learn". I must have used up his entire time allotment at the park, since the van came by shortly after to pick him back up. Watching him climb into the van, I'm convinced that he'd be asking some tough questions, if not of his handlers, then of himself.

What a great idea Kyle. I never would have thought of that. I'm usually in a hurry to get them off the property.

Oh, they're too much fun for that, Cindy. One of my favorite things is finding someone willing to argue, and they come right to my door looking to talk me into something. They're always very polite, and I try to keep it civil, without demeaning their beliefs, and so I can pretty much keep them there as long as I like.

Kyle, you are a character. But, you did see an opportunity when it presented itself. Great thinking.

I'm smiling from ear to ear. That is awesome!
