So I hope the Baptism families did not take notice of the funny odor this morning at church. Apparently we Wednesday evening, eat dinner at church, goers did not take the garbage out......left the lid off the garbage can and......what we had for dinner that night was.......hot dogs, baked beans, and brocolli. Those of us whose noses work better than others were greeted with this lovely smell upon entering the church and thought that surely the sewer had backed up. Not the case. Pastor Stuckwisch did not take any notice so I wonder if Pastor Grobein did. I know his wife did. This tale belongs in the misadventures of Emmaus or something. Perhaps it could go in the new church directory of what not to forget before you leave the church.....the garbage. Since my fellow dinner eaters and wonderful dinner preparers lurk about on this blog, I plead with you all to help remember to get the the garbage out. I am very glad it was not the sewer and was as simple as just taking the garbage out. Phew. So much for first impressions of the Baptismal parties. I have to admit that while looking at the pastor's heads turned towards the alter, I wondered if they were wondering what the awful smell was. I guess they think more lofty thoughts than me. I bet the organist was wondering though.
Sorry for airing Emmaus's smelly garbage here online.......it was slightly amusing though too.
