196 of 210 : The Jehovah’s Witnesses

Dressed in Sunday finery, clutching Bibles and copies of The Watchtower and Awake!, they appear. “Oh, no,” I say, “we have our own faith, and we’re very careful not to stray from it!” “Not straying from the faith” is a prime JW tenet, so it flusters them greatly. Most effective.

[By the way, Tony’s wife and dog appeared today—a little ahead of schedule, but we’re having a cool spell, so maybe it confused her. The dog is a little larger, and she’s stopped dying her hair (it’s mousy brown and gray now), but her voice can still echo for blocks.]

Answering the door in you underwear flusters them too. I've heard.

Yeah, but looking through the peephole, realizing it's the JWs, then stripping on the fly just so you can answer the door---isn't that more hassle than it's worth?
