I Don’t Know…

What do you guys and gals think? I am a capable lead guitar player in the classic rock and southern rock genre, I spotted this ad in my local Craigslist:

I’m pretty sure I am not going to meet their requirements… Number 3 and numbers 6/7 maybe (unless you count coffee and my pain meds an addiction), but the rest is just not happening. I honestly am having trouble believing anyone can meet these standards. Especially x-ians!

  1. Go for it but tell them you are in it for fun. Mention also you are addicted to coffee. Loathe fundamentalists like Ham


  2. So basically they want a half-assed guitar-playing zealot. 🙂


  3. I’d see if they wanted me, but I’m addicted to Jesus so I doubt it. 🙂


  4. #2, #5, and #9 — Who makes the judgment? And #3 — what kind of addiction are we talking about here? I mean, the individual could be “addicted” to Jesus, right?


  5. Oh man, you’d have sooooo much material for this blog! That alone would tempt me…but in the long run I’d probably go insane.


  6. Requirement # 10: Be able to convincingly fake all but item’s # 6 and 7 above.


    • You know as much as the believers do dive into their determination to believe, I get the feeling most of it is a put on. A show.

      And if you aren’t good enough at putting on the show there is something wrong with you…

  7. An All Saints Band, eh?

    They should recruit from among Norwegian bachelors. “So you know they’re not only good for you, they’re pure, mostly.”
