Awkward Family Story: Heaven Help Me

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,

Kevin*

Brotherly Love - Behind The Awkwardness

Brotherly Love

“This is a photo of me and my brother taken in 1979 when I was 4 and my brother is 7. it was taken at Olan Mills and there were other photos from this shoot, but none quite as magical this one. This photo is a running joke in our household and hopefully it will be in everyone else’s too.”
