“We believe…”

Begin a sentence with those two words and my mind drifts away.

“…that there is only one true…”

Deeper, deeper, my thoughts travel to a place without ears, eyes…

“…are you listening?!”

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.
