Midnight In The Van Of Theological Virtues

on October 30, 2009 in Fantasy

“You missed the exit,” the woman in the passenger seat of the van said to her sister, who was driving.

“They didn’t have a Hardee’s back there,” the driver said. “But I know there’s one coming up soon. I know it.”

“They might have,” the first woman said. “We could have checked. There might have been one.”

“I’m not stopping for ‘might’… but I know if we keep going we’ll find one. Just keep your eyes peeled for a sign, okay?”

“Guys, we could just stop off at a McDonald’s,” a third woman said from the back of the van. “Or Wendy’s. Heck, I think they’re all pretty good.”

“You’re way too charitable, sis,” the driver said. “We’re not settling for a damn McDonald’s. I’m going to find a Hardee’s if I have to drive all night.”

“I hope it doesn’t take that long,” the woman in the passenger seat said. “I really have to go to the bathroom.”

“See, that’s why I went when we stopped for gas,” the woman in the back said.

“Well, aren’t you just the greatest of us all?” the driver said sarcastically.

“Thanks, but I think you two are pretty great, too!”

“I hope we find a Hardee’s soon,” the woman in the passenger seat said.

“We will,” the driver said. “Just keep believing that.”

    *grin* Took me a while to figure out the names of the three ladies in that van but I finally got it. Nice one Miss Erin. :)

    Yeah, I sense symbolism. But I’m too dense to get what you’re trying to get across there. Sorry.

    so pretended i’m stupid and explain it to me please.

    That’s it, Arc. “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” – Corinthians 13:13, King James Bible

    I think they’re Patience, Hope, and Foresight. Those are theological virtues, right?

  6. Marx says:

    nah, frelance is right. The driving woman (Faith) wants her sisters to keep believing they’ll find a Hardee’s, her sis (Hope) in the passenger seat hopes they’ll find something soon, and their sis (Charity) in the back is way too charitable – she’d even settle for a McDonald’s.

    Heh. I get it now. Thanks, Freelance.

    Part 2 should be the girls finding a Hardee’s and meeting four guys representing the cardinal virtues! :-)
