10 things meme

Ten things I've done that you probably haven't



1. Walked down a sewer pipe in New York City

2. Been in two accidents where the car flipped over (once driving, once in the death seat), and walked away from both without a scratch

3. Threw up in Bill Maher's basement

4. Almost set the bishop on fire with runaway charcoal from an incense burner

5. Shook hands with Tony Orlando and Dawn

6. Been gay, then ex-gay, then ex-ex-gay

7. Got picked on by Peter, Paul and Mary from the stage at a concert (I was in the second row)

8. Got totally drunk finishing up the wine after a big communion service

9. Played Seven Bridges Road on the guitar, then stripped naked and sat in a sweat lodge

10. Married my brother and my husband's sister (not at the same time)

You married your brother AND your sister-in-law AND your husband? And no divorce? Polygamist!

As Dorothy Parker once quoted,

Hoggimus, higgimus, men are polygamous
Higgimus hoggimus, women monogamous.

I did #1. I can't even imagine ever doing it again, but I did. Ew.

Going to the treatment plant to draw samples was worse. Imagine the raw sewage from all of the western half of Brooklyn, right in the same room with you, and you having to dip ladlefuls out and pour it into specimen jars. I did it every day, and never got used to the smell.

My mother and sister were swooning. I was too--I thought he was pretty damn hot, with that mustache and all.

WRONG!

I *have* nearly set a bishop on fire with a wayward thurible ...

and, I've also been drunk on communion wine ... I am a bad, bad boy.

This was on Christmas Eve, everyone in full regalia. I was Deacon of the Mass, and I'm always dangerous with a thurible, but especially so that night, since it was my first Big One at the Cathedral...

At the installation of a rector, the same bishop told me to drink all the leftover wine after finishing ablutions. I was newly ordained, so I just did what he said. The other deacon later told me I should have poured it down the piscina in the sacristy. I had to be driven home.

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. I can't believe you.

I'm surprised you didn't warn another priest with a thurible: “Darling, your purse is on fire.”
