Chapter of faults meme...



Fr. Eric kind of started it.
.
Name 5 or more embarrassing faults/facts you have committed in the past - and if you were running for office or something, you would be embarrassed if they came out - I added that part. (For instance, Fr. Eric voted for Mondale! - I know!)
.
1) I once made a prank call to 911 - several years ago! - to complain about a wild party my friend was having, claiming it was too noisy and disorderly, and that I wanted a squad sent out. (I was at the party earlier - it wasn't wild at all.) Anyway, the party was on the other side of town and the operator said to me, "You tryin' to tell me you across town and can hear all that racket?" I said, "Huh? How do you know that?" And she said, "I got caller ID an' I know who you are and where you callin' from!" I was just happy not to get a fine.
.
2) Up until 5 or 6 years ago, I used to speed a lot of the time, often pretending I was in a chase scene like you see in the movies. I loved to weave in and out of traffic on the freeway, or cut in on merging lines by taking the shoulder to the furthest point I could go, and then cutting in. (It never occurred to me it was rude - I just thought it was good driving. I know!) One day it all came to a screeching halt - literally - as I was racing across the Ford Parkway bridge in St. Paul, going 65mph in a 30mph zone. Because of the volume of the radio, I did not hear the police siren, and he was pretty angry when I finally stopped. Gratefully, I only received a very expensive ticket. After that incident however, I always drive within the speed limit.

  1. My awesome new Catholic friends had these beautiful Monstrance pins on their lapels,and I decided that I needed one too. So I drove to my nearest Catholic religious goods store. I told the old man running the counter that I needed "Monastat" . He looked puzzled , I couldn't understand why HE was confused. I said you know "Monastat","MONAAASTAAAAAT" , I began to speak slowley because I thought he was a moron.He said "Miss we don't carry that here, you will have to go to a different store." I said sure you do , my friends bought theirs here and I know you have it . You know the little gold pins that have an image of the body of Christ on them. He said "oh you mean a Monstrance pin"? I said yeah that's it. I could feel the heat from my flushed face. I bought my pin as quickly as possible ,and I never wore it . Sometimes it sucks being the convert, the odd man out so to speak.
