Elise, a rose in the desert

Now this is crazy! This is a spiritual wasteland. No one seems to have a spiritual thought. As I am checking out, the receptionist (Elise) says, “I like your English (meaning my accent). Where,”she continued, as I put on my deepest draw “are you from – Texas?” I said, “South Carolina.” She replied, “Oh, I want to go there so much. There are Jews there, yes?” “Are you Jewish?” I asked her. “No, Lebanese, but I am Christian, a REAL one. I am not just a baptized one. Do you understand?” Did I ever understand. Yeah!
