Your frown off husband, honey. I broke a glass in the kitchen wife. I'm coming with the broom husband. It's not urgent. You can walk. I hope you enjoyed that. And that tickled you a little bit. All right, let's jump into the stories for this week. Our first one comes from a regular Jersey, Joe in New Jersey. How could there be laughter singing in a choir when it's 99 degrees and you're in church and your is on fire. This was the case many years ago at thankful Baptist church with a Reverend put on a show. After the three hour show, the family reunion folks from the North were ready to go. But the main event had not commenced, which was the food and plate stacking Olympics. All the men who were considered thin stack their plates a mile high after the blessing convened, the men made a scene, snap, crackle, and pop. There was no way the competitors wanted to stop, but in the very end, they all realized it was a sin to hoard Fu from all the others plop, plop, fizz, fizz. Your imagination will take over from here. You dig. Thank you, Jersey , Joe . You always bring it every week and I appreciate you. And I'm sure our listeners do too next. We're going to hear from Linda B in California, laughing at church is common where I go. The pastor preacher priestess is fun and the choir members are gifted and in touch with life. I visit the, we know better now church in my brain. Every Sunday I wake up at 7:33 AM on the dot I shower, make coffee, sit in my favorite sunny spot in my guest room . And I start my sermon. I then sing two songs as I am the choir director of my we know better now church. And I make sure I tell a joke to make me laugh. When I'm done with myself sermon, I stand up, stretched down and touch my toes. Then my knees and my thighs, hips, stomach, heart throat, both arms and elbows, my ears, mouth and eyes. And then my head. And finally I say, thank you for all of me and continue with my everyday life. As I see fit. It's a beautiful thing. Thank you. First time , contributor Linda B in California. Lastly, you will hear from yours truly here. Monique Gilmore , Scott pastor was going on and on about what I no longer knew. I tuned out after the church choir saying their fifth or sixth song. I can't take it. Gees feels like I'm at a never ending concert. And with that thought I began laughing uncontrollably and loudly so much so that the pastor finally shut up. The music came to an abrupt halt and I felt the words of Tupac all eyes on me for real. First of all, I should have never sat in the front row, but my cousin who sat next to me and who was highly embarrassed insisted, we sit up close besides she's a regular active member who ties and volunteers and is in charge of the woman's activity group. Of course she would be sitting on the front row. Me on the other hand, wished that I had not come to church with her today or at the very least sat in the back of the no super quiet church. Never again on the front row. Well there you have it, ladies and gents, our stories for this week. Did you enjoy the stories? I hope so.
