Overheard: Backgrounds

Friar 1: "What's your background?"

Friar 2: "Catholic."

Friar 1: "What do you mean?"

Friar 2: "It's a species of apostolic Christianity."

Friar 1: "I meant the background picture on your phone."

You friars are a bunch of Catholic nerds, and I mean that in the best possible way. :)

This reminds me of the time I asked the owner of a Christian bookshop if he had, "A Time to Embrace" (A Time to Embrace; Essays on the Christian View of Sex by Olver Barclay.)

He had an armload of books at the time, sighed deeply, put down the books and gave me a hug.

"Ummm, I mean the book," I said.
