Diversity Tango

One of the things I’ve always prided myself on, is a love of variety. I’ve made a point of trying food from all over the world. I have music in my collection from most every genre I know of, from classical to zydeco. And I’ve had sex with all sorts of people, people of different races, people of different sexes, people everywhere from a few years younger than me to five decades older.

So, even knowing that “pride is a sin,” I mentioned this to God the other day. She laughed. I said that I didn’t see why being so available to what life has to offer was so funny. Then she started giving me a run down of just how much goes on on this planet that I don’t take any part in. She talked about things like species that are going extinct without my ever touching them, foods that would make me long for the familiarity of a corn dog, and drugs that would completely change my view of the universe, right before they killed me.

In the end, I felt kind of like the bar owners in the movie The Blues Brothers, explaining that they had both kinds of music, Country and Western.

When it comes to diversity, well God’s got it all and even the best of the rest of us are merely pikers.
