GOOD TIDINGS TO YOU

"GOOD TIDINGS TO YOU.....I TRULYTRUTRU....WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR...."

A CHRISTMAS OR HOLIDAY STORY WITH A BIT OF A DIFFERENT TWIST.....

OMIGOSH DICK AND I ARGUE SO MUCH

F LAROUCHE

I'm sitting at a local coffee shop, drinking a cafe late (so fattening but I love the taste)  scrunched over my old (it's only 2 years old but in today's rapidly changing techno world it might as well be a hundred years old) IBM pentium laptop.  I see a bunch of other gen yers scrunched over their laptops and drinking coffee or cafe latte or frappucino or whatever.  I wonder how many of them work, but then it's the 'Great Recession' and I've just got a bare bones wages and at times I just  hate going to waitressing job so I shouldn't gloat.

Anyways I'm looking at some interesting information on the Net when guess who walks into the coffee shop?  Dick my aetheist/ scientist/ Throop professor friend.  I don't want to argue evolutionism versus creationism  with that guy again.  I'm a little bit aways from the cashier and kind of duck my head below my laptop so maybe he won't see me.  He buys a cop of coffee......He then looks around......in all directions......He doesn't appear to see me and then he....... heads towards the door....GOOD HE DIDN'T SEE ME SO I CAN RELAX AND FINISH THIS INTERESTING ARTICLE ON THE NET THAT I HAVE BEEN READING....

I'M REALLY ENGROSSED IN THE ARTICLE WHEN I HEAR SOMEONE WHISTLING.....I LOOK UP AND SEE DICK, SMILING, A HOT CUP OF COFFEE IN HIS RIGHT HAND.....AAAAAAARGGGH....THAT SUN OF A GUN KNEW I WAS HERE ALL THE TIME.....ON TOP OF THAT THIS AETHEIST IS  WHISTLING 'WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS...' THE NERVE OF....'THAT AETHEIST.'

"GOOD TIDINGS TO YOU FIFI DEAR OLD GIRL," He said.  I just happened to peak in your direction as I was about to leave and I saw a wisp of red hair behind a laptop....I know you come here a lot to do your blogging or your surfing or practicing your lines for an audition and presto.....I come here and see it is you....He sits besides me at the table...

"WELL I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING I'M NOT DOING....I'M NOT ARGUING WITH YOU ABOUT EVOLUTION VERSUS 'NATURE.'  I snap......."I'm just reading about this stuff about 'vibrations' and the Astral World....That's why you can't see souls and spirits and stuff like that....They're vibrating at a different 'level. ' You know,  like when ice turns to water then it turns to steam, the atoms are vibrating at diffirent levels.  It's the same thing but the ice, water, and steam are in different states.  So why can't the same be said about people when they die?   Perhaps they go to a solid state to like a gaseous state....I even called up my  Quantum Physics professor at Quincy and he kind of agrees that people could be living in different quantum states......You know people's and thing's  atoms, molecules, and cells are vibrating much quicker in these other worlds, that's why   we can't see the spirit world.   Ohbytheway I'm probably the only Hollywood actress and I'm certain I'm the only waitress in the whole country who took Quantum Physics in college.....

Dick just stared at me and took a sip of his coffee while I blabbered away...He smiled at me after I was done and shook his head...."Fifi you absolutely amaze me....Still thinking there's 'life after death....While I also took a course in Quantum Physics at University I don't believe that means people are 'vibrating' at a different levels of consciousness...Are you referrring to this nonsense called the Astral Realm?"

"Of course I mean  the Astral Realm and all the other realms where the departed live....Now Quantum Mechanics talks about vibrating atoms and stuff like that, that's why you can't see things, you know that String Theory thing these physicists talk about.....Not to mention Dick how about Einstein and his E = MC Squared forumula....You know matter can be converted into energy...So that means that any matter can be turned into a form of energy...It doesn't have to be nuclear stuff....When you burn coal and papers and trees or anything else you know it all turns into smoke,which is really like... energy.  Besides we all have an energy or 'astral' body that's surrounds our physical body. I've shown you that white milky stuff that surrounds your body, that astral body that goes into this higher frequency 'astral world.'  I just hope my higher frequency body doesn't get sent into one of these cold lower realms where all the evil and bad spirits live, that's why if I became a rich and famous actress I'll give the majority of my money to all kinds of charities.....

Dick of course put his head back and laughed.....Ahhhhhh Fifi Fifi Fifi....I must admit my 'lower frequency body' is quite humored by what you just said......I mean like we've been discussinfg back and forth....Just look at this nonsense of  'Astral Worlds ' and 'Intelligent Design...' CAN YOU SERIOUSLY IMAGINE AN INTELLIGENT BEING OR BEINGS THAT EXISTED BEFORE SIMPLE....DINOSAURS LIVED ON THIS EARTH?

"NO BUT IT COULD BE LIKE A NATURAL THING DICK.....I MEAN THE TEACHERS OR PROPHETS WHO DID WELL ON THIS EARTH COULD BE LIFTED TO THESE HIGHER REALMS THAT COULD BE CREATED AS PART OF 'NATURE'....I MEAN FACE IT DICK IF YOU WERE LIKE SOME SPIRITUAL AETHEIST ENTITY WHO LIVED ON A PLANET FAR FAR FROM EARTH WOULDN'T YOU BE SKEPTICAL ABOUT LIVING PEOPLE AND ANIMALS BEING BORN AND DYING ON A PLANET WHO WEREN'T DESIGNED BY AN INTELLIGENT BEING?" 

Dick smiled, "I HAVE NO IDEA...."

"Well there you go.  BY THE WAY WHY ARE YOU AN AETHEIST SINGING 'WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS?"

"My mother is still a member of the Anglican church so I still buy her a gift for the 'Holidays' and when I visit her during this time of year she absolutly loves playing that 'song.'  I will be traveling to London to visit her next week.  You know I actually like the rythm of the song except I sing' WE WISH A MERRY SOLSTICE 'AS OPPOSED TO 'WE WISH YOU A MERRY........'  ACTUALLY A FEW 'PAGAN' FRIENDS OF MINE IN ENGLAND WILL BE SINGING WINTER HOLIDAY PAGAN SONGS AND THAT WILL BE ONE OF THEM...PERHAPS I'LL TAPE IT AND SEND YOU A DVD .'"    He got up.......  ANYWAYS FIF I JUST LOVE ARGUING SCIENCE AND RELIGION WITH YOU........YOU HAVE A VIEWPOINT THAT IS SO......'UNIQUE....AGAIN GOOD TIDINGS TO YOU FIFI, ENJOY YOUR  'HOLIDAYS.'

"GOOD TIDINGS TO YOU DICK," I snarled back  with a smile..."ENJOY YOUR....... WINTER SOLSTICE...."  I went back to reading more about 'astral realms and quantum mechanics' on my laptop.....I don't undertand that Dick...My Yogi, my Qunatum Physics professor, and my Catholic priest all beilieve in life after death and divine spirits, why can't he?
