This is not my fault. This morning I was thinking, and I thought
about the recent thread on Pondering in the Workshop.
Now, I am not religious, I consider myself spiritual now, rather
than Christian, altho originally raised Christian. Still believe in God
too, just probably a bit different perspective than most people. High
Priest for the Woodworking Gods.
That said, the question: What does a Jewish, Moslem, Buddhist, or
whatever, woodworker say when he hits his thumb with a hammer? If he
was raised in the U.S., I figure he's probably gonna put "Jesus Christ"
in there somewhere. Far as that goes, what would an Amish woodworker
say? I don't care how religious you are, there aren't too many peope
who aren't going to say something.
Now me, I know for a fact that sooner or later the words Jesus
Christ would probably fit in there somewhere. Probably proceeded by
sonovabitch, and several other choice words.
And, I'm convinced there is no athiest or agnotic in existance
that's just going to say "Oh my, I have gone and hit my thumb". They'll
be instant converts to religion, and calling on God and Jesus.
The more I think about it, the more curious I get.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind dont
matter, and those who matter dont mind.
