Conversation with God

On my way out of the office this afternoon, I stashed a handful of Hershey Nuggets in my pocket for the ride home. I'd eaten other candy today so it wasn't necessary but I wanted them anyway. On my way down the stairs to leave the building, I had this conversation with God in my head.

God: You don't need those nuggets.

Me: But I want them.

God: You shouldn't eat them.

Me: Are you sure?

God: Yes.

Me: Damn. [pause] Excuse me.

God: You're forgiven.

Me: Thanks. Ok, I won't eat them. *sigh*

By the time I got to my truck, I'd forgotten that the candy was in my pocket. I put them in the cabinet without remorse when I got home.
