A: It's like sitting in the Astrodome while a hurricane passes over

Q: What is "sitting next to Marshy during church"?

I swear, no matter how tired that child is, he is a non-stop tornado/hurricane/Holy Terror during church. Seriously.

He sits on the bench and "reads" the hymn book.

Then he hops down to the floor to play with the book holder.

Then he's back up on the bench, reaching over the back to steal the row behind us's hymn book.

Then he's back on the floor, crawling under the benches.

Then he's looking for his bottle and puppy.

Then he's sitting on Mike's lap with his bottle and puppy.

Then he's smacking Grandpa in the head.

Then he's trying to eat Fruit Loops.

Then he's back on the floor playing with the hymn books.

Then he's crawling under the benches.

Then he's back on Mike's lap.

Then the meeting is over. FINALLY!

And that is why, according to Granpa P, sitting next to Marshy is like sitting in the Astrodome while a hurricane passes over.

I found a few little notes from me in my mom's Bible after she died. I guess when I was old enough to write I still wasn't old enough to sit totally still, so I wrote Mom little notes. One was very bossy, saying "Write this down!" It was a page number in the hymn book for my then-favorite hymn, The Old Rugged Cross.

Even then I liked the oldest hymns the best.

But you HAVE to feel sorry for the poor souls sitting BEHIND you. You are helping send them to Hell for the mental cussing they are doing during services.
