Bottoms Up

I just found out today that milk is on sale at Meijer this week for $1.66 a gallon. I love it when that happens! It really is a big deal when you go through 5-6 gallons a week and you have such an exciting life to begin with. Today, after church, John & I got to serve the coffee and they were just drinkin' it like water, man. It really is a fun job because you get to see all the people at one of their most forward looking moments when they are reaching for that styrofoam cup of church coffee after sitting still for over an hour. The look in their eyes says it all, and they love you. We were pouring and pouring till John had to go teach his catechism class leaving me alone there. Finally, one of our wine-tasting friends and his cohort came to the rescue by railroading the cart back in to the kitchen for me. We were pretending that it was a Starbuck's/Coffee Beanery cart and it was the end of our shift and hey, it was time to cut 'em off, already. Our wine-tasting events may be a little pretend, too as they usually involve whether the wine is tinny or tastes like shoe leather. It's usually more the name of the wine that gets critiqued or joked about, and it is so much fun. Like did you know Liebfraumilch is a German wine and the name means "blessed mother's milk"? That alone lends itself to a pretty fun evening.

I want to go to your church it sounds more fun. The coffee stinks and all you get is powder creamer. I bet they don't serve that at Starbucks. You're people sound like their "styrofoam cup in hand anticipation" is a good thing. What about their "After the first sip facial expression"? How's that? Maybe if we served wine after church instead of Dutch sized micro-styrofoam cups of paint thinner tasting coffee with chunks of dried creamer floating on top with worthless stick stirrers, all the expressions would be pleasant and relaxed. It's an idea. You try it first.
