So there are two parties I wish I could be at this evening. One is a housewarming for a friend 9 hours away and one is a red wine tasting party 20 minutes away.
The first is of course a no-brainer. I'm a pastor. It's Advent. We sent our regrets.
The second was also a no-brainer.
It didn't start until 8.
My sermon wasn't done.
Our regular babysitter is out of town.
A lot of red wines give me a headache.
I don't usually drink on Saturdays before I preach.
So it was the obvious decision to make and yet still a bummer.
