The question (from a few decades ago) that prompted the title was: What’s it like, living two lives?
And now, reason #571 why I’m going to Hell when I die:)
The Scene: Doc is getting out of his car at a local shopping center and sees two young women handing out religious flyers and asking “Have you heard the word of God?”
Doc’s evil muse, Ed, drops a small tacnuke of inspiration on him. Doc gets back into the car and retrieve’s a leftover picture postcard from last summer’s Route 66 trip. He begins writing. When he’s done, he puts the postcard in his pocket and exits the car.
Young Lady (to Doc): “Hello sir! Have you heard the word of God?”
Doc replies: “Heard it? Hell, he sent me a postcard from his vacation! Just got it today.” Doc produces the postcard and hands it to her. “Here, take a look.”
The Young Lady, now confused, takes the card (from the Big Texan Steak House in Amarillo, Texas) and reads it. It says…
“Dear Doc, Grace & Roscoe,
Having a great time cruising down Route 66…Tried eating the 72 ounce steak here, but couldn’t do it…Should be in Albequerque tonight…will call you when I get to Barstow.
The Young Lady reads the card and is, as far as Doc can tell, rendered speechless and semi-paralyzed. Doc takes the card and says (as he heads inrto the nearby grocery store “That God’s a great guy, but he’d better spring for the beer this time.”
When Doc leaves the store a half hour later, the two Young Ladies are gone…no doubt to see if God sent them a postcard.
