So I was driving into Halifax Sunday morning, trying to decide whether I should say the word "shit" in my sermon. Poopie? Crap? Nothing else quite fit the bill, particularly since the context was "Shit Happens" (my central theological belief). I was concerned about giving offense, on the other hand. It was a close call.
Then I had a sign.
It was the McDonald's marquee on Quinpool Road. I looked up as I was driving along and read, "Come in and try our new Anus Burgers!"
And I said, "OK, I guess I'm going to say shit."
So I did. The congregation loved it.
(Lo and behold, I had a camera in my purse. Check back for pics soon.)
