Last night, tired and ready for bed, I said, "Melba, can we pray?"
"Can I take my drugs first?"
Of all the tempting responses to give while she downed a few pills, I chose, "Do you think that will help you better communicate with Diety?"
"No. I'm taking drugs just to help me through your prayer."
Sometimes A- acts more like me than I do and it really makes me wonder how she deals with me all of the time. Whoa, I just re-read that sentence. It's either really deep or really stupid.
I'm going to stop now.
