Tonight at the Food Lion:
CASHIER: How are you tonight?
ME: Good. You?
CASHIER: Well, I’m alive.
ME: That’s definitely better than the alternative.
CASHIER: Not really, because I know where I’m going when the lord takes me. That’s the easy part, right? Life is the hard part.
CASHIER: Um, if you believe that, of course…
It must suck going through life wishing you were dead.
Even back when I was a believer I don’t think I ever managed to convince myself that my life would be better if it were over.
