Erica talks to people too...every now and then...
Yesterday I was buying a Christmas gift for my step-dad, and this is the conversation that ensued:
Girl Behind Us in Line: What is that?
Francis: Ganesh, it is a Hindu god.
...20 seconds of silence...
Girl: How can you worship that thing?
Girl: Don't you just believe in god?
Francis: That's a can of worms that you just don't want to open.
Erica (me): I agree
Clerk: Yeah, I believe what I believe
Erica: Besides, it isn't about worshiping this, it is a gift, and it is about appreciating other cultures
Erica: Unfortunately Savannah can be a bit uncultured at times.
Then we left. I'm sure we were talked about. Oh well.
