My daughter Barb and I were hired to conduct an in-depth survey After a day of reading questions and writing responses, we were getting weary, but we decided to finish the last two people before calling it a day.

I dropped Barb at her final location and went to mine. I finished early, so I walked in on Barb just as she was finishing the personal data section, which included the question, “Religious Affiliation?”

I knew a hard day’s work had finally gotten to Barb when I heard her ask, “And finally, what is your religious affliction?”
