A Moment of Very Slight Glory

You know how you think of the appropriate or witty thing to say way past when it would work to actually say it? How you fumble around at the opportune moment, then, minutes or hours later, in the shower or in bed, the perfect reply occurs to you, and you kick yourself? Well, that’s the story of my life – except:

Thursday, a dinner guest was saying that, of course, the differences between Catholicism and Lutheranism were so utterly trivial as to make no difference. And, mirabile dictu, I quipped: “Catholicism generated Aquinas. Lutheranism generated Hegel.”

Maybe you had to be there.
