But He Never Yells Back "What, Keisha?"

The people next door have an 18 year old son.
The 18 year old son has a new girlfriend.
And from what I hear coming through the walls, the new girlfriend is really really religious.

UPDATE: This afternoon, the son was "entertaining" his girlfriend again, and as she hit a particularly high note, the GM1 and I both burst into "The Hallelujah Chorus".
It got vewwy vewwy quiet on the other side of the wall.

I wonder if God has a cigarette when it's over.

I won't make any comments about sperm whales.

I have an 18 year old son, too. And I'm not a very open-minded parent. He would be outta here if he had that kind of religious experience in my house. ;)

Well, as a nice neighborly gesture, you could buy her a Bible, wrap it nicely, put her name on it and leave it outside the door.

The Note:

I have heard that you are seeking a higher being, if this doesn't work for you, I could leave the Koran or a Torah the next time. Just keep calling out until we get to the version you desire...

This is your opportunity to answer her through the wall, it a big booming voice. When we lived in another place, we lived next door to a couple who had a hot tub and who used to call upon god all the time there. Our friend Terry, finally couldn't stand it any more and yelled out, "Yes my children, are you calling me?" That stopped it.

OMG! The Hallelujah Chorus... that is hilarious! I DO NOT miss living in an apartment. None of my neighbors ever had "religious" experiences but on two separate occasions two different sets of neighbors had loud and explicit arguments that had something to do with one partner being frustrated in his desire to have an immediate religious experience because the other partner was insisting that there be no more religious experiences until the proper words were spoken before a preacher and assorted friends and relatives.
