Drabble: This Is My Blood

This Is My Blood

“Little known fact, there’s a couple of little-known universes where the Eucharist is beer.”

“How exactly does that work?”

“Well, as you know, history generally follows a certain path, with variations. Nobody’s quite sure why, that’s just the way it is. Well, in these ones, the messiah that led to the formation of the major European church was born not in Bethlehem, but a ways southeast, in beer-drinking lands. So the sacrament taken in memory of his last meal reflects this difference.”

“How does that effect the place as a whole?”

“Not much. The people are somewhat happier.”
