The Origin of God

T

In the Beginning I once imagined I had an encounter with God and I’d like to share it with you. I had a fever, my body temperature was hitting the roof and it was as if my skin was being pried open with needles; somehow, I drifted into a sleep on the saggy sofa in my father’s living room and by the time I woke up, I was drenched in my own sweat.

HOW I BECAME A YAHOO! BOY (The Yahoo! Boy) – Part 4 Owning or having a phone in 2001 was luxury, but it wasn’t when compared to having an email account.
