Anyway, I said sure and started putting gas in her container. She asked me if I believed in God and I said yes, which brings me to the point of my story. My answer to that question is a lot more complicated than that, but if I'm in a situation where it's easiest to answer "yes" or "no," I'd prefer the assumptions about my worldview that someone would make based on the "yes" answer to those that someone would make based on the "no" answer.
She complimented me on my hair, and because I said I believed in God, she told me that Corinthians states that a woman's hair is her glory. ("believes in God => considers Bible to be holy book" is not the best assumption, but oh well.) The conversation kept me looking at her long enough that the pump clicked off and I found that I'd filled her 5-gallon tank. Oh well, it's not like I could have asked for any of it back as my tank was already full (plus that would have been rude)(don't usually give $15 to random people but I can deal). Here's hoping that her family isn't traveling the country with "God Hates Gays" signs. But even those people want the same thing I want, which is a world in which everyone is happy, loves each other, and finds some sort of spiritual connection. They just have a very different idea about how that is accomplished.
After the Wal-mart excursion I decided to get some chicken nuggets. The dude said it would be cheaper as a Happy Meal, so I got that. I'm really confused about the instructions that came with the toy. I would think that most kids would naturally put the carrot in the bunny's mouth and discover how well it fit in there. Then the instructions say to turn the carrot. Nothing happens. It does not feel like there is any mechanism inside the head that is supposed to make anything happen. Because of the shape of the mouth, the carrot doesn't come out if you turn it sideways, but I don't see any play benefit to having the carrot locked in the bunny's mouth at a weird angle.
