WOMAN SAVES DAY AT CHURCH'S DEDICATION SERVICE



Today a Presbyterian Church, famous for it's ambitious several phase building plan, held their first service in the brand new Worship Arts Building. The service was a joyful celebration that included the Cherub Choir and Praise Band leading the contemporary worship service.

Afterwards there was, as there is every week, a stampede to the restroom. The new restrooms in the building proudly boast four, count 'em, four stalls for the ladies as opposed to the two in the older restroom.

Imagine the horror. Imagine the grief, when it was discovered that one of these brand new beautiful stalls was locked with no one inside.

The line grew longer and longer. Tensions mounted. Mutterings made a wave of noise up and down the line.

UNTIL

One brave and daring woman (that would be me) laid down on the brand new tile floor and shimmied under the locked door to the stall, discreetly avoiding the gaze of the ladies seated on the adjoining porcelain facilities. Before unlocking said door, she availed herself of the beautiful new toilet and then exited to applause and admiring congratulations.

Her mother spent the rest of the day bragging about her daughter being lithe and agile.

Her son just shook his head and said "she does stuff like that ALL the time."

Congratulations on getting into the stall! And, of course, the new building. I'll have to make a pilgrimage to my former church and check it out.

:-D

While all around, hands are wringing and legs are crossed, the level-headed PG takes charge and does the obvious right thing!

I wish, like ed, I could come out there and see how the old place has changed.

Very good. Excellent. But, as you're a Presbyterian shouldn't there have been some sort of committee meeting first? I mean, where did you get your ten point action plan from? And, most important, did you to check to make sure the Church's insurance covered this sort of operation. In fact, I think you'll find shimmying is specifically excluded under most Church insurance policies.

The real question is: why did't the first person in line take care of it?

You're our hero, PG!! Just love a take-charge gal...

Presbyterian Gal said...

Thank you all, thank you. I was doing my civic duty.

Mad Priest: You're so right about the insurance. It was fortunate that I didn't twist or pull anything in the shimmy. And committee meetings? As is usual in my case, they are scheduled after the fact.

GG: I was about the third or fourth person waiting and the only one not wearing shibboleths that day.

Sounds like we had similar Sundays. Is there something in the air down here?
