Party On, Party People!

There is a house I pass on my way to work that has a sign in the yard that says “Prepare to Meet Thy Lord.”  Which seems to mean I’m supposed to be throwing a party for God, and I don’t know how to plan it.

For instance, is He bringing Jesus?  ‘Cause if Jesus comes, I can just buy bottled water instead of wine and let ol’ J.C. do his thing.  But will Jesus be bringing His mom and step-dad?  ‘Cause they’re fairly orthodox Jews and that means I have to keep the menu kosher.  And I’ll have to buy new dishes… maybe I can just get a fish and a loaf of bread and call it a day.

Also, is this a small, private party or will the Lord be inviting His business associates?  And if so, which ones?  This menu is getting tougher and tougher… I’ll have to have the vegetarian option for Buddha, and something non-alcoholic for Mohammed to drink, and we can’t have burgers if any of the Hindus are coming or they’ll get pissy and start playing keep away with the Pope’s hat… That’s also gonna factor into what day to have the party ON…

And I don’t care if it is the Lord’s party, Joseph Smith is not allowed in my house.

  1. Oh I was at the hospital with my mom last night (gotta love emerg.) Anywho Jesus was there… did you know he drives the wiskey bus? Man can’t even figure out how to lock the bathroom door!

    To be honest he’s so totally waisted that I doubt he will be able to read the invite, let alone invite other people.

    I hate to say it but I think that you would be best to make friends with the red guy down stairs. He has a lot more fun! And make it a pot luck! Problem solved.

  5. This line brings me great joy: “And I don’t care if it is the Lord’s party, Joseph Smith is not allowed in my house.”

    Absolutely. You cannnot be too careful with someone like THAT.

  6. Gees, my first thought was they must live on a very dangerous curve or that they were tellign you they owned a vicious dog. Could you sneak over there and put a ‘wipe your feet’ sign under it?

    This is one of my favorite conversations with you. I think we can drive The Concubine fairly crazy with this one – along the lines of “The Letters Back to Paul from the Corinthians.

  8. Yeah, I thought it meant that THEY were hosting the big guy and wanted you to get ready before you entered the house. You know how embarrassing it could be if you walked in all unsuspecting with a “Fuck yeah, let’s get this bitch started, woo-hoo,” only to realize the all-holier-than-thou one was standing right there. It’s like when you accidentally say FUCK in front of your parents. Awwwkkk-ward!

    Pretty sure Joseph Smith would be smited if he walked in on that party. Or at least, I am hopeful of that.

  9. Maybe they’re just covering all the bases just in case bat shit crazy is right about the Rapture. “Cause you know he’s going to come up with another date sometime.

    And as for “preparing”, that’s kind of vague, isn’t it? I mean, is this a formal occasion, or is business-casual appropriate? Do I need to dig out the false eyelashes and get a spray tan? Because right now, I’m wearing a Perry the Platypus t-shirt and sweats, so some major transformation is going to have to occur.

    • Well, ol’ JC is usually pretty casual, what with the sandals and all, but you just know some of the Hindus are gonna show up all decked out in gold saris and shit and make the rest of us look like crap.

  10. Last time I was in Kenova, I saw a big sign outside what looked like a crackhouse converted to a “church”, which said “Turn Aside From Fornication!” It was next to a daycare place.

  11. I’m not sure if “Prepare to meet thy Lord” is a threat or a promise. It does say THY Lord, not THE Lord. I guess that means you prepare for whomever you usually worship. So if you’re a Satanist, you’re gonna need a couple of goats, some chalk, some candles, a large flat concrete slab…..I dunno. I’m not a Satanist. If you’re Wiccan, you might have to walk around naked because they’re supposed to be “sky-clad.” This could make the view in places like Berkeley a lot more interesting.

  13. As an escaped Catholic, I feel pretty sure that this pope wouldn’t be invited to the party.

    I’m also confused about the attire for this party. I feel that any god we’d want to party with would be pretty casual. Maybe a jeans and pearls type event? In which case sardines and crackers, fish and loaves…yeah.

  15. Joseph Smith always ends up with a lampshade on his head and hat with your gold jewelry and candlesticks in it. And he doesn’t even drink. Sheesh.

    And that sign is most definitely a threat.

  16. Totally related in my head: there’s a high school I drive by on my way to work with a sign that says, “What comes before Part B? Part-ay!” But I keep reading it as Plan B. Which would also probably hold true.

  17. You’ll also need to prepare for that awkward moment when the WBC crowd shows up with their signs and God’s all, like, “well, no, actually, I don’t hate any of those things.”

    I hate that they never tell you when the Lord is coming. What if I’m in the shower and miss him? Could he call first? Send out an Evite?

    • This is exactly like my Dear Sweet Mama’s fear that she’ll get Raptured while she needs to pee… what if the Lord shows up while I’m on the toilet? Will he leave a note like the cable guy?
