Choose Wisely

When you are outside where the tractors are mowing
and the plows are spreading
and the birds are chirping
and the chipper is chipping
and you are having a hushed but stressful conversation when all of the sudden the church chimes start to LOUDLY play the hymn that you sang at your wedding do you...

a) laugh
b) cry
c) both
d) stop and stare dumbfounded
e) kick him in the nads!!!

For the record I did (a) which kept me from doing (e).
He did (d) then (c).

God's been messing with me this week, too.

Teri said...

I'm impressed with your willpower. I think I would have done E for sure.

Then again, I'm impulsive like that...

Might as well (a). But, you need some sweet salve of nurture, stat.

Mary Beth said...

Avoiding E was very gentile of you. Uh, genteel?

DogBlogger said...

Vicar, the timing thing really is the point. Out of THOUSANDS of songs in our chimes catalog that is the time it randomly plays 'Blest Be the Tie That Binds'?

The good thing is that pre-BE I would have felt like it was another kick in the shins, now post-BE I felt like I was in on the joke.

I would guess that your relationship with that hymn isn't over by a darn sight.
Our processional hymn when we got married was "Praise, My Soul"...
And last summer my tdx walked our daughter up the aisle at HER wedding, toward Officiating Mother Unit, to the strains of...."Praise, My Soul". And it was just FINE.

The bells! The bells! You are a strong woman. I would have had to at least pinch him or stick out my tongue. Something!
