Things you'd think I'd have learned by now...

1. It's not wise to gorge yourself on dried apricots a few hours before going to evening Mass. That's juuuuust enough time for them to make themselves known in a most uncomfortable, cheek clenching sort of way.

2. Perfume will not cover up the stink of just cooked fish clinging to your clothes and hair. Attempting to disguise it in this manner simply renders one smelling like a fisherman's wharf inside a perfume factory.

Yeah, at Mass.

3. People will butt in front of you no matter what kind of line you're in. Even if it's one that has formed in front of a Book of the Dead where people write down names of those who have died so they can be prayed for during the month of November.

Seriously. Butting.

4. The pressure of a long line of people waiting behind you will make you edit your list of names down until you have just one.

Thomas.

Lol -- where I come from it's "butting in line" (you can also "butt your nose" into someone's conversation). Sorry mass wasn't all it's cracked up to be this week! Glad you got Thomas' name down, though. It is nice seeing our kids' names in black and white, even if it is for somewhat morbid events.

Seriously? Budding? Huh, I always thought I was "butting in line". Er, not that I'd ever do that.

Those dried apricots have gotten me before, too. Not at mass, but in a very quiet office. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
