The scene: PEACHY is sitting listening to Celtic music on Pandora. Gaelic Storm’s “Floating the Flambeau” has just begun.
Me: Hmm…is this “Tornado Alley”? Or… “The Salt Lick.”
Peachy: Looks like “Floating the Flambeau.”
Me: Ohhh, okay.
Peachy: How do you float a flambeau?
Me: By being a saint.
Me: I don’t know; all I can think of is Elisha and the floating axe-head.
Peachy: But…isn’t a flambeau on fire?
Me: Well, right…so you have to be an extra-cool saint. Like Moses and Elisha mixed together!
(There is a chance that the song title refers to a certain brand of fishing lure. But really, that is way less fun than a fiery torch floating about.)
(I suppose one might categorize both Moses and Elisha as prophets, but I suppose part of me hopes that God might grant prophet-powers to his saints as well.)
