There’s a church on my way to work which for a long time had a banner out front reading “The Church of I Feel Good.” Sadly, I was never able to get a picture of it, since they’d taken it down by the time I found my charger for my digital camera.
Today, there is a new banner in its place. It reads, “Who R U?”
Yes, boys and girls, the inevitable has happened. AOL chat room speak has invaded the hallowed Halls of God.
I can just see it now:
s0ulsavinman: who r u?
s0ulsavinman: no, really, who r u?
born2s1n: I can be anyone you like.
born2s1n: how about a secretary? we can be working late…
