I met Simon in a cafe one day.   This is the story he told me…

He leaned forward, “Do you believe in God?”

I swallowed hard. This was not really something we talked about, and unlike now being an atheist wasn’t all the rage. It was a personal thing.


He did not like my lack of answer.

“It’s a simple question, young man. Do you believe in God? Or is what a little bird whispered in my ear untrue?”

Before I could answer he slapped one of the piles. “…and I am wasting my time again.”

I struggled to answer him.

“I.. Well… What does… Well no.”

He smiled a satisfied smile and leaned back a little.

“Good. Good. This is a good start. Honesty. Finally.”

He put his spectacles back on and opened up his calendar book to jot a note. He shoved a piece of paper across his desk and pointed at a line with his fountain pen. A rather large blot accumulated as he waited for me to take the pen. “Sign here.”
