That was almost fun, even if it’s only 8 degrees (F) outside.
Two Jehovah’s Witnesses are doing rough duty today, tromping through wild Wisconsin weather to call on my neighborhood.
But I think they are warming up fast, based on the way they are picking up their pace.
They rang my doorbell a few minutes ago. I mustered up as much cheer as I could muster this morning and opened the door.
The first guy actually grabbed my storm door and held it wide open. His companion stood back about three feet and waited.
“Good morning,” he said. “May I give you a little booklet about God?”
I looked him in the eye and said, “You are a Jehovah’s Witness, aren’t you?”
Immediately, he let go of my door and took two steps back. (I’m not kidding.)
“Um, yes,” he replied.
“We are Pentecostal Christians. Thanks for stopping by,” I said with a big smile.
He and his partner whirled and ran.
Works every time!
