Yup, True Story

Tonight, I was trying to get the kids dinner on the table and had just popped open a little Miller Lite (oh, I love the new 8 ounce cans--perfect size). The doorbell rings and without thinking I open the door with beer in hand.

On the other side, are two men in white shirts and ties. One guy says, "Good evening, we are missionaries with the Latter Day Saints. We'd like to share a story with you."

I reply with "Sorry I am feeding my kids dinner." <Laughing that I am holding my beer>

"Can we come back at a more appropriarte time?" he asks.

To which I salute my beer and replied "I am proud to be Catholic, thank you very much" as I shut the door.

I gotta give them credit for having the courage to ring so many bells that they know won't get the return they're looking for. But I hate strong sales, especially at my front door, and ESPECIALLY when it concerns God!

Those people never come to see me. If they do I have some questions for them. I have heard some crazy stories about their religion and I want to know if it is true.

WTF. Do I live under a rock? Why have I not heard about these 8 oz burrs?
It wouldnt be very smart for me because that would increase the times I have to leave the back porch to get a new one.. but still.. it sounds cuuuuute!
