    Either your method of delivery was flawed, and/or this person isn't as open-minded and intellectually honest as believed.

    Anybody want to guess what the moral of this story is?
    STHU. That about covers it. I wasn't there, but proselytizing is rarely converting. Wrapping one's arms around another's legs, screaming, "Jesus loves YOU!" doesn't get many folks in church, allegorically speaking.

    Polite.
    Professional.
    Prepared to kill.

    Be the first two, and people will see the "implicit implication" of the third.

    Yes, AA is on target.

    I truly believe my delivery was flawed. However, I don't do my best work when my belly is full of Tanguery and Tonic. I think she was put off by my overly passionate delivery. I'll do better next time. I promise.
