God's little joke on Godless daughter Olaf

Tom Winnifrith
Monday 14 May 2018

And so as summer looms daughter Olaf is preparing for an exchange with a Spanish student to help her with A level Spanish, not that she needs it. And so her teacher reads out a few details... this will not be a problem unless you are a militant atheist.Er...

It turns out that the exchange student is a devout Catholic and thus while in England godless Olaf will have to go to Church with her new pal at least once a week. Three church services in a month will be about the same as the godless Islingtonite normally manages in a decade. I cite this as evidence that God has a sense of humour. Olaf says "humph" and is not convinced.

Does this mean that I cannot introduce her to xxxxx xxxxx, a pal of her mother's who is camper than a row of tents asks Olaf. Of course you can say I, just make sure that you know the Spanish for "This is xxxx and his soul will burn in the fires of hell."

As you say at Christmas, dear Godless Olaf: "happy holidays."
