A great, snarky comment from a regular reader on my post "Things People Say to Me Now That I Have Cancer." Made me LOL!
When someone says they will pray for me, I tell them that prayer is a cosmic lottery with very long odds; so bring me a beer and then pray at your convenience -- at least I will have the beer.
I used to ask for the beer and tell them to do something useful like cleaning the litter box instead of wasting their time -- and god's -- with prayer. But I have become much more charming.
