Earlier Anners said she was going to stop by Deadpan and see what new stuff I was up to. I didn’t know how to tell her that I hadn’t posted anything in a couple of days and I felt like a total slacker.
Don’t hate me for not posting. At the moment I’m going through two (2) major life events which I would be thrilled to share with you…eventually. Right now it’s just all giving me agita.
Actually, the agita might not be stress related. Yesterday I went to a friend’s daughter’s first communion and I think I might have eaten a bad shrimp or something. The first communion was nice though, it brought back some memories of my own first communion back in the Stone Age. Then I got to feeling guilty that I don’t really go to church anymore, and because Dante should have made his first communion by now, but Mr. Rizzuto is a non-believer so that ain’t gonna happen. And I keep forgetting to baptize Janey. No, that’s not true. I just keep putting it off because I’m out of practicing Catholic friends/relatives to be godparents and thinking about it gives me agita.
If you want to know the truth, the last time I went to church (voluntarily) was when I dragged Dante so we could pray for a black pope. They picked Benedict instead. You know, the guy who was forced to be in the Hitler Youth. Like I was forced to eat that Mrs. Smith’s cherry pie the other day.
(I tried to upload a pic of my first communion c. 1976 but it didn’t work. Sorry.)
