The Gospel According to John... Mayer

"So if you want Love, We'll make it.
Swimmin' a deep sea, of blankets,
Take all your big plans, and break 'em

This is bound to be a while..."-- Your Body is a Wonderland



I'm feeling really religious today. It's a sunday. so while your Mom is still in bed this morning, I read her some religious biblical passages to show her that I'm not the hedonistic sybarite that she thinks I am. Actually, I made her read them to me:


"Thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck... The joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman... Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor... thy breasts to clusters of grapes... And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak..."

--Song of Solomon

Read me a Bible passage while I'm sick and I'm gonna rotate my head 360 degrees.

Kidding.

(Mental note: tell dusky guy andolini to forget about song of solomon. he should try reading to cat "theology of eros" instead)

Hi tk,
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments. I don't think there is a verse like that in the Book of John. The Book of Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs)has been widely interpreted in volumes and volumes of Commentaries by Catholic and Christian Bible scholars so I will not comment on that. Suffice it to say that your cavalier approach to the scriptures speaks so much about you. I wish you could do the same on Muslim blogs and make fun of their Koran verses. Could you? They don't teach Scriptures in medical school, that I know. Probably only civility and mutual respect for others. Thanks and God bless you with the wisdom to know and discern the eternal verities of life.

Mel> uhm... It's John MAYER, sir. He sang the song "Your body is a wonderland." I played the tune on my saxophone before my wife and I made out that day. It was nothing short of a religious experience, a different kind of sacrament. And it was a sunday (The french call uknowwhat "Petite Morte" or little death so the metaphor is quite apt). That's why when I wrote the blog entry dedicated to her, I gave a spiritual connotation to John MAYER's name.

The entry was for her, sir. I'm sure you will understand when I say that the only opinion that matters to me regarding this particular entry is hers.

Actually, this blog is for her and our kids. Someday they will read it and it will remind them of how great a blessing from the Lord they have been, how they made our weary existence wonderful even right from the start of their lives.

My profound apologies. I'm sorry if I misunderstood your post. I was guilty of jumping into conclusion and had erroneously misjudged your intentions. The Lord pardon me for this misdeed. God bless you and your whole family with the very best in life. Smile and have a nice and pleasant day.

i always find those words from those verses enchanting. and you are sweet. :-)

TK said...

and You, Bing, are polite. I'm sure you deleted the word "horny" before you settled for the adjective "sweet"
