After reading another Blog it occurred to me that I really did not know what the 10 Commandments were.
#1 NO OTHER GODS.
#2 NO IDOLS
#3 LORD’S NAME IN VEIN
I definitely am not very good with this one. A friend of mine is reading books on a radio station for the blind. When I read that “God Damn” was right up there with “Fuck” for a FCC "no no" I was shocked. In fact I remember saying God Damn is bad? God Damn!!
#4 KEEP THE SABATH DAY
I do not go to church and I work at the gallery doing things for Accounting Clients on Sunday.
#5 HONOR YOUR PARENTS
Well now that I am older this is easier to do, but my parents are just people. I do not believe that everything they think, say or do is good. In fact, there were many years I thought that they were pretty ignorant and religiously tried to do every thing the opposite of what they wanted.
#6 DO NOT KILL
I would not have a problem killing someone who was trying to kill me or someone I cared about. I might feel bad about it, but would definitely feel justified.
In fact I just executed 3 big stingy type of bugs that dived bombed my desk. I did not feel remotely bad about this. Stingy types of bugs along with mice and rats need to stay outside and not invade my domain or death is their punishment.
#7 DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
I have never committed adultery –so I am good on this one!
#8 DO NOT STEAL
Does this apply to people’s lighters, pens and pencils? Does this apply to using the copier at work when I know they are charged 1cent for black and white and 8 cents for color copies? Does this apply to the Apples on my neighbor’s tree? How about finding $100 on the ground in a bar under the video poker machine and not reporting it to the bartender? The Bartender would probably just pocket it anyway…
#9 DO NOT FALSELY ACCUSE
When I was living with someone and I could not find where I put something I admit accusing them of moving it. In fact, If there is an inequity in my office at work I will accuse someone of moving my shit. Typically I will find that I was the one who put “it” whatever “it” might be in the wrong place. I rarely admit that it was me that erred.
#10 DO NOT COVET
In Conclusion other than the Adultery thing I am a complete moral failure according to the Old Testament of the Bible.
How do you stack up?
The picture is of my gallery talisman: A Nicorette race car, an angel stone, a mean nun who spits fire out of her mouth when you wind her up, a jewel, a turtle and yes a bottle of levy breach water from Katrina. I do not think this is odd at all :)
