As I am sitting at a first communion parent meeting at church for my 2nd grader, I look around the room.
There are about 10 round tables with 5-6 people at each, except mine. It's only me and another woman who also got lost finding our way around the church.(not something I am proud of.)
I look over to a table with 2 men and a woman.
(thoughts in my head)
"Who is that guy?"
"I know, I know him!"
"Does he have a wrestler at the high school?"
"Maybe at the jr. high...maybe he's one my my daughters friends dad!"
"No ....did he go on the field trip with me & my 2nd graders class?"
(I am not even listening to the sister because I am now in full swing tunnel vision)
"I am going to be really embarrassed if he's a neighbor."
"Who is he, I almost feel as if I have had a conversation with him"
Then I refocus on what the sister is about to say...
"We would all like to welcome the Father, who is here on his day off, to speak to all of you about your childs first communion!"
I am so ashamed!!!
"How could I not realize it was our priest?"
He was in Dockers, a plaid shirt, and a khaki jacket.
embarrassing moment #548
It's not as if we have a mutitude of priests, (like most churches I've been to)
We have one!!!!
I only told my eldest, who I might add rolled his eyes, shook his head in disbelief, and then burst out laughing.
Oh yeah it was a proud moment for me.
I'm only human....there was NO COLLAR!!!!
