I’m starting to think I need more coffee before I do the school run.
(me) Today is Thursday, right?
(a dad at the school play yard) Yeah, it’s Friends, and Steinfield tonight, remember when we used to do that?
Not really, I wasn’t allowed to watch TV. I occasionally snuck some on Wednesday nights while my parents were at church.
There is so much going on with that sentence.
*grapples with the obvious age difference between us and my parental TV restrictions*
Your parents had TV restrictions?
Yeah, that’s why I watched it when they were at church.
Your parents really liked Jesus?
They were Christian Scientists.
We’re taking the kids to Boston for the weekend to show them the Mother Church.
Don’t forget to take them to the Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity. Just be careful you don’t catch anything. They don’t vaccinate.
As a community aren’t we supposedly believe that too. *wink*
On one hand it was refreshing to not have to explain what Christian Science was (one of the mothers is convinced I should get in touch with Katie Homles), on the other, it was an all together too surreal conversation.
