Calling Out The Pious
At my local church there is a wonderful woman that stands upfront and *signs* the entire mass for whomever in the parish may be hearing impaired.
I've noticed that she keeps and sips a water bottle on her little podium. What's that all about? She doesn't *say* a single word for about an hour. How could her throat be dry?
Now I know very little about signing so perhaps it's a real athletic, real exhaustive endeavor.
But if it ain't....I say she should be allowed hand lotion but nothing more!
True Story - my brother's ex-wife, who wasn't too familiar with religious services, once cracked open a Snickers bar during Christmas Eve mass. We were sitting up front to boot!
