No Hablo Ingles

In the post below I shared about our service on Sunday and about the silly thing a woman in my congregation said to me on her way out the door. We have all had those ditzy moments where the synapses ain't exactly firing as God intended, but some seem to have more misfires than others.

One of the stories about this same woman that makes me laugh out loud whenever I think of it took place at a pretty stressful time in her life so we'll give her a break on that, but now that we know everyone is ok - healthier than ever even - we are allowed to flat out laugh at this.

She and her two adult children were rushing through the hallways of the city hospital trying to track down where her husband was. As they turned the corner they saw a directional sign in front of them that said: ICU/NICU. She glanced at it and with frustration threw her hands in the air exclaiming:

"Oh great... Spanish."

Even with the seriousness of the situation the story goes that her adult kids doubled up with laughter right there in the hallway.
