MMMMmmmm! Boy, this frozen yougurt sure is good. Its Ben and Jerry's.
The flavor? Well, "Cherry Garcia," of course!

Although, I must admit that I almost, just for a moment, believed in God
when you said, "Just beleive and have done with it," because then I could
have gone on enjoying my frozen yogurt without any conflict.

It sure would be nice to be done with this God thing. But, I'm not
likely to get religion because someone says "just believe," anymore than I
am likely to buy Nike's..."Just do it."

Well now, back to something a little more fulfilling. I love my frozen
