BLUSH & CRINGE-BYOP
Okay I haven't done one of these in a long time simply due to deadlines. But believe me, I could write a Blush & Cringe five days a week because I do something to embarrass myself nearly every day.
Anyway, this one isn't really about me but about my church. We were going to host a retreat before next weekend. So during announcements, the pastor briefly mentioned some last minute instructions regarding what to bring to the retreat, which were going to be held at some remote cabins.
A bunch of new people happened to walk in at the moment he said, "And also, you might want to consider bringing your own pot."
The people just stopped and gave him the strangest look. But, they bravely continued their trek in.
I mean, yeah, we have a very laid-back church. So laid back it's horizontal in fact. But, the pastor encouraging illicit drugs from the pulpit? Not a chance. LOL.
He meant COFFEE pots because, while the kitchenettes have coffee makers in them, no pots for some reason.
