The conversation today in the 2nd Grade Sunday School classroom:
Emme’s Teacher: “So, Emme, what was your favorite gift to give this Christmas?”
Emme: “It would be the Rum Balls that I gave to my Uncle Pete.”
Emme’s Teacher: (with raised eyebrows, I’m certain) “Um, did you try any of those Rum Balls?”
Emme: (with obvious disappointment in her voice) “NO. My Mommy didn’t let me.”
If she had been allowed to partake of the Rum Balls, there wouldn’t have been enough for Mommy. Or Uncle Pete.
And we would be looking for a new church.
