On Spinners and Worship

It’s not so much that I don’t like the look of spinners. I think they are dangerous.

I mean, think about it, you are about to make a turn into traffic. You have to judge the speed of oncoming vehicles. If somebody has their spinners revved up you may think the car is going faster than it really is and avoid making your turn only to realize you had plenty of time had you not been deceived by the spinners.

But what if the spinners are moving slower than the actual speed of the wheels’ turning? Then you misjudge the speed of the oncoming car in what could end up being a very dangerous miscalculation. You get halfway into your turn and realize you are in big trouble as that car closes in on you.

Why all this talk of spinners?

Yesterday I saw something that just doesn’t make sense. No, I will go further than that, it just shouldn’t be allowed. If they are going to legalize spinners, then they at least ought to control them so that this never happens again.

Yesterday I saw spinners on a mini-van.

I have never owned a mini-van. I have never owned spinners. Sorry to brag like this, but it’s true. Now I understand some people feel they have no other choice than to buy a mini-van and some people, with taste very different from mine think spinners are appealing. But how in the world can you put the two together? Some things just do not go together. Two of those things are spinners and mini-vans.

Please, stop the madness! The next thing you know we will be having blended worship services. Hmmm, on second thought, perhaps I should learn to appreciate that blue Ford mini-van with the spinners. Next time I see it, I’m going to have a moment of silence to give thanks for diversity. In fact, maybe it’s time to test drive a mini-van. And where do they sell those spinners, anyway?
