I had a contagious disease.
Quick one-liners to explain why you haven't been to meetings
As a chronic meeting misser in my last days (see, I really was living in the 'last days') of the cult, I do not recall anyone ever asking me that question, and, as there is absolutely no chance of ever being asked that question in the future, the best I can only do is surmise what my response would be, and, all I can up with, based on my experience with those idiots is -
"Do you really care? Well, I don't, and it's none of your business - so just piss off!"
Cheeses. The loving one - not to be confused with that other bastard.
I love the 'I'm simplifying my life' and 'I was present - just invisibly' ones!
Like ssn587, if anyone said they missed me at the meetings, I'd answer, 'Try aiming better.'
"Do I know you?"
Hah!!! I love Heaven's response... "I no longer choose to marinate in an atmosphere of gloom and doom..." [something to that effect...]
Opus92 - "I've been busy practicing witchraft and becoming a lesbian." GREAT!!!
MsDucky's responses were also great! I'd like to take this one, " I had a contagious disease.." and turn it into this: "I think I've picked up a contagious disease - I've been reading old WTBTS literature and now I have DOUBTS!!!"
Jesus of Nazareth said, "Where two or three are gathered in My name, I'm there." Think about it!
i actually used this one with the "concerned"
members of a car group (the last one to stop
by with an invite to memorial 2008! go figger!)
my family is doing so much better since we
no longer marinate in a doom's-day atmosphere...
the ensuing silence spoke volumes
Syl, I love it! EXCELLENT
I got a life!
