Last week I noted the certain irony of examining Junior Certificate Science and Religion on the same day. Whilst talking to a beautiful stranger in The Village on Saturday night the topic somehow came up in conversation. I noted the irony once more, expecting her satisfied chuckles in lieu of my (blatantly obvious) witticism. The conversation continued and ended like so:
"What's funny about that?"
"Science and religion."
"Science and religion? Together?"
"Well, maybe the exams were arranged alphabetically."
"I wish. My sister is sitting her Music exam next week."
