I didn’t quite understand all the standing up, kneeling down, or the reading as a group several different prayers and pieces.  Made me feel jesus-caveman_rklike we were in some kind of secret society or something.   At first I was kind of lost but my wife’s youngest nephew showed me the little play by play book and then I was able to follow right a long

I might have zoned out by the time it was time for the man dressed like a penguin, (no really he wasn’t,  but I always thought they did dress like those cute little wingless birds)  I don’t think anyone noticed my zoning in and out except for my wife when I asked her… Hey did they guy say something about Jesus being a caveman?

My brother in-law and his wife (this one likes me)came over with their kids and we had a great dinner afterwards.  Made me realize just how much I had missed out on when it comes to family.

  caveman-eating-meat-smallI always wondered why her family was so close, and at times it even has bothered me, but I think I know why now…did you know Catholics aren’t allowed to eat before they go to Mass? Yep, they call it fasting or something like that.   They believe they have to do it before they take part in the whole Eucharist thing (by the way non Catholics can’t take a bite of Jesus with them).  Anyway, back to my point after all this fasting all day and then the standing and kneeling, standing and kneeling, standing kneeling that they do…THEY ARE STARVING and when they get home to eat, they kind of bond over dinner, they equate that satisfied feeling with being with family and not with  the satisfaction of finally filling their empty bellies!

caveman-3My brother in-law took me aside and congratulated me for attending, and for not bashing the service afterwards.  I told him my church bashing days are over now.  As I promised tothewire we would raise our future cave babies in the Catholic church…Kinda makes a caveman sad as I have derived a lot of pleasure from this in the past.

    i will always remain an atheist.my agreeing to go to church and raise our little cave babies there is of little concern to me…afterall believing in santa never affected me…lolit really was worth just seeing how proud tothewire was.she had invited me several times before.
