You knew it had to happen. It was only a matter of time before I offended one or several people at our new church. Today was the day that it happened, not once but twice!
Our church service opens with a lay person doing the morning greeting and announcements. This person uses a hand-held mic because Hubby uses the around your head rock star mic. Well, Hubby was about to stand up to make an announcement in church but realized his power pack was turned off. As he stood up he made the unfortunate comment of "I better turn myself on here!" which completely tickled me and I burst out laughing. I got several glances, but managed to compose myself before too many people noticed.
But then the lay person started talking about the upcoming church yard sale. The lay person reminded people that this yard sale was meant to be a little more upscale and they didn't want any clothes. I was sitting next to a man who kind of giggled at that statement so, I, with my off-color sense of humor, piped up "What kind of church is this where clothes are optional?" Only I said it a little too loudly and one of the blue hairs in the pew in front of me turned around, scowled at me, and said a very loud "SHUSH!!" I was duly chastised and didn't say another word the rest of the service. But it was bound to happen!
On a worrisome note, my little SPCA dog seems to have developed kennel cough. Today being Sunday, no vets in CountryTime were open. I called our vet's emergency number but she told me not to come in until tomorrow since dogs don't die of kennel cough. But still, E is beside herself with worry and the poor little mutt feels miserable. I sure hope the vet is right!
