Taking James to a Wedding
James’s teacher was married today.
We went to her wedding.
It was in a Catholic church.
We were standing, waiting to be seated.
James told me that he was thirsty.
I told him to wait and spoke to a friend.
Then my friend started laughing really hard.
James had decided that Holy Water must be as good as regular water.
And so he was drinking directly from the spigot.
My friend had to use her tissues early.
The ones she brought in case she got emotional during the wedding.
To wipe away tears of laughter.
