know I am not God

despite what Michael Smith says

but he was ‘good soup’*

*(The reference to The Man From Mars, Michael Smith, in the final pages of Robert Anson Heinlein’s “Stranger In A Strange Land” always made me laugh on each re-reading. So much so that for a time when I encountered someone actually or in fact was “a Brother,” I’d sometimes call out: “Hey, Broth! You Are some Good Soup!” and usually the subject head would shake, not ever simulating a nod, and I’d get the impression that my weird ways with words were welcomed only rarely.)
