One of my pastors (who’s also my Masters Program mentor although we haven’t had much mentoring going on lately) told me he enjoyed my blog. (Yikes. He knows the secret identity of C&BI.) I wasn’t sure how to respond so I did my usual stumble-bunny routine and came across as a complete and total dork. I was actually a bit uncomfortable about Mentor Hal reading my blog. I found myself muttering something about how I try not to get too nasty or hateful and don’t swear (much). I actually told him I hadn’t divulged my blog to anyone at school as I wasn’t sure the seminary folk would appreciate it (hey, those are some serious Baptist people).
I was starting to feel a big squeamish as I mentally sifted through what I had written lately (especially the one on how I used to nick food at the grocery) and found myself getting a sweat mustache. Then Mentor Hal laughed about my Golden Destroyer, and told me what he enjoyed was my writing on how difficult it is for me to get my homework done in the face of every other little distraction (see Well, Crap on a Crutch).
So I snapped out of it — Mentor Hal understands those issues with homework better than most as he’s embarking on his own journey towards finishing his theological doctorate. Besides, when he successfully defends his dissertation I understand an angel will get its wings. No, wait, wrong story.
I’m sure Mentor Hal realizes it’s just a goofy blog. He knows God has a sense of humor… C’mon…God gave us Benny Hinn. Duh.
