You must be Round John Virgin?
Blog Guy, somebody told me you’re working on a book. I presume they meant you’re READING one?
Nope, writing one. I’m doing serious academic research into a fascinating subject.
I’ll probably be sorry I asked…
Have you ever wondered about the people mentioned in Christmas Carols? We sing their names every December, but who were they?
You mean like Jesus? We do know who he was.
No, I mean the more obscure folks. Like Mary Gentlemen. You know, “God rest ye, Mary Gentlemen…” What do you suppose her story was?
Oh Lord. I don’t like where this is going.
And that Harold Angel guy. “Hark, the Harold Angel sings…”
You’re a real dimwit, Blog Guy.
And what’s up with Solomon Stillness? “The world in Solomon Stillness lay, to hear the angels sing…”
I have to get out of here right now.
And that Don Ouinou dude really fascinates me!
Oh no. Don Ouinou? As in…
As in Don Ouinou our gray apparel. Gray? I mean, why aren’t you wearing red and green for Christmas, Don? What’s up with that?
