From: Peter Loftus To: Sam Sayers Sent: Tuesday, April 20, 11:01 Subject: Glory Be! Yo Sammy boy! What’s occurring? It’s Peter Loftus, the crazy as a hatter Pastor man from Riverdale Church. We met last week at the yoof conference? I appreciate you giving me your e-mail address, but for future reference please glance at people’s credentials first – I could have been some random psycho freak! Hope you’re well and that the rash and itchiness has subsided. Forgive me for keeping my distance, but I’ve never had chicken pox before and it can do bad ass things to a man of my years. Word on the street is that you’ve been ‘zapped’ by God. Your friend Milly told me this morning and I was like ‘shut up!’ and she was like ‘nah, totally straight up, man!’ and I was like ‘that’s wicked, man!’ Then I gave her a high five. Sorry, I’m just trying to be down with the kids. Do you still say wicked? All this modern word play confuses me. In my parents day ‘gay’ meant ‘happy’ then it meant ‘homosexual’, and now it appears to mean ‘rubbish’ ?? Whatever!! It does still mean rubbish doesn’t it? Only the other day a member of my church told me that he’d been to a gay club the previous night. At the time I just laughed and assumed he meant it was rubbish… but then he sends me an e-mail contradicting this by saying he really enjoyed it and asked if I’d like to go along with him one night. Anyway, I digress. Have you told your dad that you’re now walking with The Lord? You mentioned that he was suffering from a reoccurring back problem. This may seem a bit ‘off the wall’ but maybe you could offer to pray for him?? Step out in faith?
