“…that there is only one true…”

I reply, “Did you know there are 51 galaxies near ours?”
“We weren’t discussing galaxies!”
“Don’t you ever wonder what the countless beings circling the suns of a million habitable planets believe?”
“When I talk to you, it’s like…like talking to a ROCK!”
“What kind of rock?” I ask. “The type you’d take for granite, one that’s gneiss, or you just don’t give a schist?”
I chuckle as a shallow stream of indignance flows past my door.
