Male Student: [Aggravated] Effect? I’ll tell you the effect is, it’s %#*¥%#% me off!

The The Purging Lutheran was roundly criticized for yesterday’s purge being too preachy. Upper management has heard the voice of the people and crumbled to the whims of its advertisers. Today’s included a bit of potty mouth but you were forewarned. Thursday’s purge is a game we found on a shelf behind the doors of a blue cabinette. First glance at the box suggests it’s a set of tiles with various designs, some sqiggles, pyramids, dots, and some circles, etc. Did the ancient Chinese, makers of other tile games, know Male Student in today’s Ghostbusters scene would be victimized by tiles/cards used for studies in extra-sensory perception? Perhaps. I don’t much remember ever playing this game but it looks like the box has been opened and closed again. I don’t know if it is Biblical, but most parents are gifted with ESP the day #1 bambino shows up until the moment #last child gets a job and moves out of the house. You either have known this, do know this, or will know this.

Psalm 127:3-5   Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
