Debbie: Okay, I’m off. I’ll be back around eight o’clock.
Marcelo: Hey, where are you going in such a hurry?
Debbie: I’m going to my religious education class.
Marcelo: Religious education class? What’s that about?
Debbie: Well, I’ve decided to convert to McQuillanism.
Marcelo: I’m not familiar with that denomination. It is Christian, isn’t it?
Debbie: No, it isn’t, but there are some similarities in the spiritual teachings between McQuillanism and Christianity, but we have different ways of worshiping – different prayers, hymns, and rituals.
Marcelo: It doesn’t sound legit. Are you sure McQuillanism isn’t really a cult?
Debbie: Of course not. My spiritual leader has been tutoring me on the tenets of the faith so I understand it, but I can see why you’d question it, since you don’t know anything about it.
Marcelo: Well, as long as you’re satisfied.
Debbie: I am and I can’t wait to become a full-fledged McQuillanite. McQuillanism is a little unconventional, but we take our faith very seriously.
Marcelo: Have it your way. What’s that you’re carrying?
Debbie: It’s a cat costume. As I said, we do things a little differently.
Marcelo: I’m sorry I asked.
