Oops - outed myself at work
Someone was playing christmas music in the main office of the elementary school where I work and another coworker said, "Some atheist is going to complain about that."

Without even thinking, I said, "Oh I don't mind at all."

Cue stunned silence.

I thought it was funny.

that's one of the funniest coming out stories I've heard. Hopefully you work with people that won't freak out over learning this new detail about you.

Offer a compromise, tell them they can keep their music, but they have to bring you a baby to consume for Saturnalia.

I think he meant red headed babies made into little loaves of bread shaped like babies.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
