God: My, you're up early.
Me: (grimaces) Indigestion.
God: It was all that cheese.
Me: I knew it.
God: Are you sure you want to do this today? I mean, on your blog? You received some affirming words about our conversation yesterday. It might be tempting to try and copy-cat or even one-better it today. Or not try at all.
Me: Goodness, cuttin' to the chase early, Lord.
God: Well, you're up and I'd hate for you to start the gift in fear.
Me: (takes 2 Tums) Please have mercy. I'll let this be what it is.
God: I am. And yes, let it be. So, what are you thinking about right now?
Me: I'm thinking about a movie I saw last night. But then a part of me thought I should be thinking about Lent or Rwanda or something.
God: (laughs) I thought we weren't going to one-better this? This really only works if you tell the truth. Rachel Getting Married - I saw it too. And?
Me: Do you remember the part where Anne Hathaway's character lied in rehab and her sister found out and confronted her with the recovery-only-works-if-you-tell-the-truth speech? Wait...Lord, you just said that, right?
God: I remember. And yes, I did. I'm glad Anne received that Oscar nomination.
Me: (grins) Me too.
God: Nice moon out this morning. I love these conversations we have.
Me: (tears) Yeah, me too.
