This morning, it being Saturday, I cleaned my room a little bit and then went down to the supply closet to get some things, among them some toothpaste. I was delighted to see that the latest toothpaste supplied for the brethren is something that looks very much like Colgate 'Great Regular Flavor.' But I'm not sure it really is, because for some reason, I can't imagine what, the toothpaste is Greek. Unfortunately, apart from the few words and phrases one learns in order to trick people into thinking you are learned while preaching, I don't know Greek. So maybe someone can help me. I would love to know if this is the Greek version of my beloved Great Regular Flavor.
It reminds me of someone I knew in college. When I met him, our mutual friend introduced him by saying that he 'lived in a superlative universe.' And it turned out to be true. Every book he read was the most interesting book ever, everyone he met was the most fascinating person, every band he saw put on the best show ever, etc. Though it could be a little annoying at times, I think it a gift to live in the superlative universe; perhaps it's an insight into the very joy of God contemplating his creation and knowing it to be good. It's a great regular creation we live in, as great regular children of God.
