Hi ya! Hey ya! Hope all's well with ya. All is well with us. I'm reaching into my archives for the next several days so I can play catch up around the house. "I'll do it tomorrow." has finally reared itself into today. Such is retirement. :-) Have fun out there.
Today's post (edited) was first published on February 13, 2013. Warning: Cursing ahead.
One of the last times I went to church with the Daddy was a Good Friday. The Mama scored big that day as she got both the Daddy and me to go with her. I don't know how she did it. I did daydream through the service. That is, until the Daddy caught my attention.
It was a struggle for his old cartilage to do all the physical activity that takes place during a Catholic mass, especially at the much longer Good Friday service. You stand, sit, and kneel a lot. I don't think the Daddy realized he was protesting out loud. I still wonder if God and I were the only ones who heard him.
"Shit. Fuck. God damn."
The Husband loves this story. After all, what's not to like: An old man swears in church.
How I miss the Daddy.
I think catholics and anglicans are the only ones who have to put up with the god aerobicsReplyDelete
At least for the Christian religion. I like that term "god aerobics". In some churches, I hear, you can get a good workout for the lungs.Delete
I've never been to a catholic, or any church, service, but I suspect my responses would've been similar to the Daddy's! ... may your house-chores go swiftly and effortlessly. :)ReplyDelete
lol! I've a accomplished a couple of organized cabinets. That's good.Delete
This IS a good story!!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you enjoyed it, G. :-)Delete
I laughed at the story (grew up Catholic in parochial school, remember well Good Friday and the agony ... and I was <13 for god sakes! Your poor daddy. I loved the story and the look at The Daddy, because I don't remember seeing his picture before and that was nice.ReplyDelete
This is my favorite photo of the Daddy. When I saw him making his way between the vines, I plopped myself with the camera on the lawn and waited patiently for him to pop out.Delete
Hahahaaaaa! I’m with your daddy!ReplyDelete
