This evening, E.S. and I had the following conversation:
E.S.: So my cousin asked me whether he could push back his visit to late March instead of February.
FAUSTUS: Why wouldn’t he be able to?
E.S.: He was worried you might have Easter-weekend plans he’d be disrupting.
E.S.: He didn’t know you were a heathen.
FAUSTUS: Well, he can push back his visit.
E.S.: Do you have any Easter-weekend plans?
FAUSTUS: I’ll probably end up just killing your god and going to the movies, like every year.
You’ll miss out on those free dried palm tree fronds.
I’m glad that you realize and appreciate the importance of upholding tradition, my dear.
Talk about the same old, same old…
You might want to clarify to E.S. that only non-monotheists are considered heathens.
Then you can have sex.
