It’s Not That Kind of Journey

Posted on August 25, 2012 by under Confessions.    

Brian and I had a funny conversation on the way to the new house to meet the Lowe’s delivery guys this morning. We have funny conversations all the time, so much so that I’m convinced it would make pretty good TV. Except I’d end up playing the role of a ditzy, Asian airhead. For someone presumably smart, some of the things that come out of my mouth are downright daft.

This conversation occurred right as we passed The Journey Church on Harry.

CHING: Let’s check out this church since we’re going to be living in this area now.


CHING: Don’t you want to go to church?

Brian just gave me a look of disdain.

CHING: It looks promising. Besides, I like Journey.

BRIAN: It’s not that kind of Journey!

We both cracked up. Brian added that, right at that moment our old friend Le Blanc (who used to say on a regular basis that I made is head hurt because of some of the things I’d say) was having an aneurysm.

It seems that there’s no convincing Brian to start going to church. Not by deception, coercion, or manipulation. He’s obviously not going to buy that Journey the church is in anyway associated with or related to Journey the band.

I wasn’t quite ready to give up yet, though. I looked up the church web site just now to get more information so I can make another attempt at persuading Brian to check it out. That’s when I found this photo.

I was like, “See! It is that kind of Journey!
