“To Forgive Divine”

“But you know that there’s more to the quote than ‘to err is human’, right?” his friend pressed.

“Certainly.  That’s the whole point.  The full translation is “To err is human, to forgive divine.’  But it seems like forgiveness is a lost art.  One mistake, one err, and you’re done.  As the random soldier in Last of the Mohicans says, ‘And I will not live under that yoke.'”

“What am I?  Chopped liver?  Shit man, I’m still here.”

“I know you are.  That’s because you’re my friend.  You know how to forgive.  You’re dee-vi-ine.”

“Whatever.  You know what I meant.  Are you done?  I have stuff to do.”
