Late Youth Run to McDonald's and Hermeneutics


So after another Sr. Youth night the boys and I head for a late McDonald's run...now this usually consists of us driving while listening to some Romanian Techno...or worse yet Aqua...ohh the humanity....anyways once we arrive at the location we begin to cruse around as the boys want to wait till midnight to get their 2 cheeseburger deal meal that starts on Thursday's... at midnight we get our meal's, with a million extra 'McChicken sauces' to cover our already grease infested food...after finishing our meal's we sit there in our car just to give our heart a moment to restart...and then we go...well yesterday something interesting happened... one of the youth (who will remain nameless) began to roll down his window and 'tried' throwing his litter out the window...it was at this point that I gave the mother earth speech and our responsibility for being good stewards of this planet that we have been given...It was at this time that the youth gave me his exegesis on why he does it...he reads from the McDonald's bag the following: "please place litter in its place" his rational: "Litter is not litter till it hits the ground when it hits the ground then it's in it's place since that is when it becomes litter, so thus it belongs there"... after giving him a sternum press...and telling him he is not going to throw that out...I thought about his logic...my conclusion: interpretation of any kind belongs in a community setting, other wise anyone can interpret anything as they see fit, to simply justify their actions...wow...who would have thought that a McDonald's Run would bring out such deep hermeneutical issues...
