Reader Cindy sent me an email with the subject heading, “There’s a ghost in my machine!” I loved her email and machine haunting so much that she gave me permission to share with others here:
“Evangelism is the preaching of the gospel or the practice of giving information about a particular doctrine or set of ponies to others with the intention of having a magical friendship others to strengthen the elements of harmony.”
I loved the part about a “set of ponies” – and “magical friendship” sounds good too!
(will never think of ‘evangelical’ quite the same way again!)
LOL, neither will I. I don’t know what translator came up with that definition, but if someone wants to offer a set of ponies, intends to have a magical friendship and strengthen elements of harmony, then that evangelical is preaching to this choir.
