    Do you like scary stories?  I have never really been into scary movies, although I went to a couple as a teenager just to prove a point.  And if you have to ask what that point is then you’ve never been a teenaged boy.

    Do you remember praying as a child?  Do you remember the words that you prayed?  Let’s try it together: “Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take.”   In retrospect a little creepy, but still. Actually, the ...read more
