If you have read this blog before, you may have figured out that I spend a lot of time alone. I work from home, so I am here, talking to cats and rolling my eyes at dogs all day, every day. So, I have a lot of time to dwell on things. A couple of weeks ago, when Jehovah’s SWAT team disturbed my peace, I got angry. The loud, cop-like banging on the door gave me heart palpitations and brought me back to the 80’s when I spent many an evening sitting in my room watching “Cops.” DO NOT give a hermit heart palpitations. It can actually give the hermit enough energy to leave the house. I almost ran down the street after the holy SWAT team in my snow flake pajamas. I decided against it as that would mean actually talking to them. Plus, what would I have done, yelled at them? What good is anger?
I came up with a better idea. Instead of being annoyed with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, I attempted to channel my inner Buddhist and find a way to help if I can. So, I’m going to give back to them, as they give to many people. They like to give people brochures and persuade them to believe like they do. Well, I’m going to share my views on spirituality with them. I may not believe in God, or Jesus, or Hell, or Heaven, but I believe in Santa. In fact, I’ve made a little flyer to share with the JWs. I’ve even included quotes from books because books always prove everything.
I’m including the flyer here, so you can use it, too. Simply click this link to get the PDF version from my Google Drive: Santa Flyer This flyer could be used for everyone, not just Jehovah’s Witnesses. I mean, other religious groups, vacuum salesmen, roofers, driveway pavers, and assorted other characters think they are entitled to step onto your porch, ring your doorbell, and invade your peace and privacy. Give them a Santa flyer, a hearty “HO, HO, HO,” and tell them to go in peace.
