Pot pie and AC
July 20, 2006 § 9 Comments
So me and the doggies are taking refuge in the bedroom/computer room upstairs so that I can run the AC full blast and we can keep cool without air conditioning the whole rest of the house. It’s a tad warm today. And brilliant me decided to make a pot pie which only made the downstairs even hotter. And i have to wait for it to cool down to eat it. Cause it’s frickin’ hot. We need to go food shopping.
I have a question for you folks. What is the craziest thing someone has ever talked you into, or something that you later realized you shouldn’t have done, and that maybe that person had some control over you that you hadn’t realized you had given?
I guess for me, it would be giving into my friends and doing drugs and getting involved in witchcraft. It was years ago, and I’ve since repented and moved on, but I see how much influence I allowed another person to have over my own thinking– doing things I had strong convictions against.
I’m just wondering how people get sucked into cults and led down the primrose path to their own death and destruction. How does a rational person find themselves waiting for the comet aliens to take them away? And are any of us immune to that sort of influence?
