Christian Mingle

“You come here often?”

“This is a CHURCH.”

“Wondered why it was so damn quiet.  And the music sucks.”

“Please keep it down.”

“That’s a nice dress.”

“Are you drunk?”

“Are you single?”


(Throwing my hat back in the Trifecta Trifextra ring; they had an open-ended challenge this weekend–33 words of dialogue.  I actually wrote 8 different snippets of dialogue to choose from–the losers are here.)

    That’s hysterical. I think maybe he took that verse about “greet one another with a holy kiss” a wee bit too literally…

    Congrats. Sorry I didn’t make it by over the weekend. Always enjoy your stuff. Great, funny piece. Classic TTD!

    I see that you got second place. Like Avis, the guy knows that being number two means you have to try harder.

    • Yes I will have to try harder. But I’m pretty happy about 2nd place for now. A lot of their prompts, such as “path” for instance, don’t really inspire me, and if I read one or two entries that I like better than any ideas I’m coming up with, sometimes I just don’t bother. But usually I’m just too tired or lazy.

    Ha, this is so funny! I once crashed a Sunday service when I was about 12 in an attempt to straighten out the paradoxes I’d found in the New Testament. They threw me out about 20 minutes later.

    ‘What is this shit?’ was the most common phrase of the day, though ‘Are you drunk?’ would have been quite appropriate, also.

    • That’s too funny; you really did that? I have a friend at work, a woman who winters in the South and works the garden area of the store in the summer, the nicest, most upbeat person I know, despite her and hubby losing 2 babies to birth defects. They were thrown out of a church (not a Catholic one, either) for not attending enough. I laughed my ass off at that, at her getting thrown out of a church. I have about zero respect for “people of the cloth”; I think the vast majority of them are money-grubbing hypocrites.

  18. good one! maybe I should go to church. Then again..
