My wife and I visited my Dad's mother over the weekend, and for the first time I found myself dodging around questions. I don't really want to tell her, because I think it will really disappoint her, even though I know she would love and accept me anyway. We went to church with her and I didn't take the sacrament, and I'm pretty sure she noticed. So now I'm thinking about letting her know. Hell, maybe I'll just issue a general announcement on Facebook and never log on again.
Anyway, it never seems to end. My friends and family are all so invested in the church that my lack of belief creates constant pain, awkwardness, or hiding. I'm pretty sick of it. Although, to be honest, I'm sick of everything. I realize I have nothing to offer this world, but it pretty much goes both ways. I have half a mind to drive over to Harbor Freight and pick up a canister of Argon gas, pipe that sucker into a plastic bag over my head, and let asphyxia gently carry me away into nonexistence. But, the missus has the car today, and I'm not quite cruel enough to ask my home teacher to help me pick it up "for a project I'm working on."
