This post is kind of coming out of left field, and is a result of a conversation I just had with a co-worker. Follow the segue:
me: hey, check out my "stigmata"
her: huh??? what the hell???
me: stabbed myself last week in the middle of my hand catching a pencil
her: you know, scientifically speaking they would had to bang the nails through his wrists, not his hands and another thing, we are missing a few days between Good Friday and Easter Sunday if it took three days to go on the cross, die and resurrect
me: yup, I know and he was also probably born in August, not December --- when they were trying to convert the world to Christianity they took some poetic license to draw the crowds, so to speak
her: someone went to Sunday School
me: sort of, but my granny went to Mass every day and if you were on her "list", you were golden. In fact, Oprah did a story on her a few years ago, after she died
her: really? that's cool
me: yup, and my dad still can't watch it. I'll send you the link
here's the link: http://www.oprah.com/rys/journeys/rys_journeys_20000515.jhtml
Happy long weekend!!!
