Awkward Family Story: Heaven Help Me

June 30th, 2011

This is an email sent to the parents of our church’s children’s choir:

Hi Everyone, Sorry I had to cancel choir rehearsal at the last minute last Thursday. I was having abdominal pain all day and it seemed to be getting a little worse and with all the coughing I had been doing I was wondering if it was the bottom of my lungs so I thought I better get to ER. So I went to St. Anthony’s for a 4 1/2 hour visit to find out it was just a bad case of constipation. Anyhow hope this wasn’t TMI. We will rehearse this week and sing on this Sunday, the 23rd, at the 12pm mass. Thank you for your understanding.

In Christ,

    Pretty much any time you use the word “constipation” in conversation with anybody that does not share your genes, it is too much information.

    Just saying “choir practiced was cancelled due to illnees, will be held on this Thursday” would have been too hard!
