Posting From Work...A Lesson Learned!

First, let me say that I'm in the office alone today. And I decided to eat my sandwich at my desk and just work through.

I just discovered that even though I usually have to push the phone line (we have three lines) button to connect to an incoming call, occasionally you are connected simply by picking up the receiver.

I learned this today as I let out a huge belch as I lifted the receiver - I hadn't pushed the line button yet, but the line was live! As I let out a burp that would have made Norm from "Cheers" proud! How flippin' embarrassing!

Fortunately it wasn't a parishoner - it was one of the Ministers.

On the other hand - it was a Minister!!!

My lesson learned today:

ROFL!!!!! What did the caller, excuse me, minister say?

Oh geez, that's hilarious...what did he say?

The minister was gracious enough (unlike me, apparently!) to not mention it at all. I'm hoping he thought it was cell phone interference????? But since we have five cell phone receivers in our steeple...I don't think that reasoning is gonna fly!
