Jean decided to pray. It was not his normal inclination. The very idea made him feel strange, as if he were trying to arrange himself in a position that he had not been designed to accommodate. Should he close his eyes? Should he kneel? What if he fell asleep? He remembered a story from Sunday school about Jesus being pissed at the apostles for falling asleep while he prayed. They kept doing it and for some reason Jesus had to go back and do it over. Was Jean remembering the story correctly? Was it ok for Jesus to be pissed?
