Solace in The Dollar Store

Yesterday we had a visitor- a cousin-in-law who also happens to be a pastor. He comes by often. The Husband and the pastor got into a discussion over politics and religion yesterday. Yay. I try to remember my grandmother's advice and not discuss politics or religion, especially with someone I disagree with.The Husband does not adhere to that rule. As usual voices got a little louder. I was sitting there muttering "good grief" under my breath every few seconds. wishing they'd shut up. The pastor went to the bathroom and during that time I gave The Husband The Look. Did it work? Nope. So...I decided to take a shower hoping by the time I got done they would have run out of steam. (Get it? shower-steam. Oh, nevermind.)


I was wrong, though. The monkeys were still chattering away by the time I got done. Woo Whee. So I decided to escape to rows of cheap tacky goodness. That's right- I went to the Dollar Store.

What's your thoughts on discussing politics and religion?

  1. A friend of mine can go and on until she convinces whomever she's talking to follow her views. It's exhausting to talk politics with people who only want to get their point across.

    1. I know people like that, too. I try not to engage them because I don't want an argument.

  2. I think it's okay as long as the other person *wants* to engage in discussion, too. There are very few people I chat about religion and politics with in real life, though!

    1. Me too, I only talk with those I know will respect my opinion, whether it differs from theirs or not.
