It was the best of years it was the worst of years.

Going to the super market I was oblivious to the fact that I was wearing my adorable "Hello Cthulhu" plushy t-shirt.

A man in front of the super market saw my T-shirt and noticed that little "Hello Cthulhu" had a pentagram on her...er his..er it's t-shirt.

He looked at me an asked, "Excuse me... Are you a satanist?"

I thought about the multitude of smart-ass responses that could come to mind... but I was in an odd mood.

I looked at him curiously... "What is a satanist?"

He looked proudly at me, "Some one who believes in satan."

Remembering, that I'm raised Jewish, now I was piqued... "Who is satan?"

"Ooh, Prince of Darkness. Harbinger of evil. Steals the souls of mortal men."

"Is this guy for real?"

"Oh yes."

"You don't really believe that do you?"

"Absolutely... you'd better be careful..."

I thought about it. Raised Jewish, I don't believe in Satan, Hell, purgetory... etc. So I looked at him and said completely honestly...

"Nope. I'm not a satanist."

I opted not to point out that between us, only one of us "Believed in Satan" and it wasn't the occultist in the "Hello Cthulhu" plushy t-shirt.

I smiled and walked off. He called after to me and to anyone else, "Help the homeless... Have a happy new year."

Proud to know I'm not a satanist.. I smile and figure I will help the homeless by having a happy new year.

Yes.. yes I know. He probably meant "Worship" rather than believe in... But the entire experience was amusing none-the-less.

P.S. More posts actually coming.

That's funny.

I wear a pentacle to work often and have been asked if I am Jewish.
People should learn to count.

Nice to see you're still alive and kicking, BTW.

Now now...stop tweaking the straights. ;)

I always just say "Yes" and look right into their eyes. Stops the conversation in a heartbeat. They never expect you to say "Yes", and they have no fucking clue what to do next if you do.


P.S. More posts actually coming.

Well, thank god for that. I thought we might have lost you. And after I sent that nice nude photograph of me and everything.

LOL. Great response. My friend took an opposite route. She kept having Jehovah's witnesses ring her bell very early on her one day a week off even though she asked them not too. Finally, when she got fed up with it, they rang her bell and she answered the door. They asked her if she wished to talk about Satan. She opened the door very widely and said, "Yes, I love talking about Satan. Come on it. What do you know about him? Can we compare notes? He is so interesting to talk about." She said she felt a bit bad cause one of the guys was obviously young and on his first set of visits. Needless to say they didn't stay long or ring her bell again.


"Ooh, Prince of Darkness. Harbinger of evil. Steals the souls of mortal men."

Come on... honestly.... did a random dumbass who thought you were a Satanist really say that? If you say he did then I will believe it, but otherwise, it sounds pretty pat, almost like, well, like made-up dialogue. However, if you swear it's true, then I'll believe ya.
