a conversation between my dad and I

dad: "here's a picture of a dog we ate."
daniel: "wow! ...can you send me that for my blog?"
dad: "sure."

thoughtful pause...

daniel: "I can't believe you ate a dog!"
dad: "it tasted like beef jerky"

thoughtful pause...

daniel: "what kind of dog was it??"
dad: "a dog that made too much noise while I was preaching."

thick silence.

daniel: "is that *why* you ate a dog?"

dad: "I don't know...
it was just making a lot of noise.
Then it got quiet...
...Then later, we ate it."

note: out of fairness to Rev. Dr. Bill Rudd, this did occur in a different hemishphere on a medical missinos trip.
