Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Mass

I just got back from Mass...the 4 P.M. Mass is all comprised of elderly people. They are very amusing because they are hard of hearing and there whispers are very loud.  You can hear the entire conversation that they are having in whispered roars.  What is most amusing is when they are talking about you and they think that they are not being heard. You get some great insight into what they think of the younger generation and their tight jeans.  "Lord have Mercy!  That girl should be ashamed of herself coming into Mass with them jeans on!  Well I never!" (and you probably never will...)

  A person must also smile at, what they assume,  is the silent letting go of hurricane force winds and of course their sense of smell is no longer as acute.  Whoosh!  I can tell  you I'm still young because my sense of smell is awesome and besides moth balls that is the worst smell imaginable in church. 

God help me when I get to be farty and deaf.

Those damn elderly are always the 4pm crowd, whether it is Mass or the local restaurant, aren't they?  

BTW, if all the 4pm mass folks are elderly, I am worrying about your earlier obsession with Mr. Nice Butt But Goes To My Church So I Can't Lust Over Him Guy.
