Me of Little Faith

It has been absolute months since I last saw my Jehova friends. I thought I had shaken them off by not responding to the odd text and email that Beth sent me and I was feeling confident that they had got the message that Bible study at 10.30 on a Sunday morning was not really my thing after all. However, lulled into a false sense of security, I received an email from Beth, saying that she had been low level ill and that was why she had been out of touch. I ignored it.

This evening, over a cup of tea, my friend Fleegle asked what had become of my Bible study and I told him what had happened and how I had kept ignoring the messages. ‘You ought to get in touch with them,’ he said, ‘else they’ll be round here thinking something bad’s happened to you.’ It had crossed my mind that that could just happen and how embarrassing would that be?

My only saving grace – and I’m scrapping the bottom of the barrel here – is that Honey DID warn them in no uncertain terms that I was ‘flaky’ and this Bible study charade was just that. And they did sit there and acknowledge that even if that was the case, no time spent with ‘precious’ me was wasted. So they asked for it? I just can’t help myself, when I switch off, I switch off – it’s definitely a recurring pattern. So, before matters potentially escalate, I sent her an email, just to make things clear:-

“Hi Beth .. I’m so sorry I have not been in touch at all. I hope you are better now. As you know, I kind of lost the ‘connection’ with all the godliness stuff and I really didn’t want to waste yours and Ron’s time [true]. I just wanted to say that obviously we struck up a friendship and it doesn’t feel right to just say, ‘Oh, I’m not into that any more’ and just never speak to you again but, like I say, I don’t really fancy studying the Bible any more and didn’t want to continue, although I defo enjoyed the Sundays we did sit together [less true]… anyway, if you’re passing, please feel free to knock on the door and come in for coffee and a catch up and again, apologies for flaking out on you and I would not like for you to think I didn’t really like you and Ron because of course I do [hmmmmm] xxxx”





Over a delicious celebratory lunch with family and friends, my friend Sparrow mentioned that he has never had a mention in my blog – he is one of my three loyal followers – and, further, that my blog started with my intention to log my struggle with marijuana and the giving up of and has descended into a place of circumspect abuse.

P.S. Sparrow, did you recognise yourself!?
