The Rapture

I'm still fascinated by the predictions for the end of time.  I can't even count how many predictions have come and gone just in my lifetime alone.  I remember one well publicized prediction back in the 60's.  I was in high school at the time and the day before the predicted "end" someone had placed fliers on our windshields warning us of the impending rapture.  Of course the day came and went and we all went on about our merry teenage way.  

All this preoccupation with the "end" made me think of all the trips my brother and I were fortunate enough to take with our parents.  But no trip was complete without asking the proverbial question "Are we there yet?" about a thousand times.  The first would come about 10 minutes after leaving our driveway.  In the first hour or two of the trip our dad would calmly answer our question by giving us mileage information or an approximate time line.  By the 5th hour of our trip he would respond with white knuckles gripping the steering wheel, "YOU WILL KNOW WHEN WE GET THERE."

So........for all you worriers about the rapture........quit worrying about it.  You will know when you get there!

Good point, Dani, but how much further? I need to know if I should buy shorts for this summer.

I think you are safe to purchase your shorts Marcia.....the next prediction is after shorts weather anyway. Better not plan any Halloween activities though :)

Went out to dinner and splurged before the last deadline. I figured it didn't matter anymore. Now the results are on my hips and other places. Have to wait until October for my next splurge.

Good point...we might as well just relax and enjoy the ride.
