Y'all lied

Ok, dear readers. When I took Use of the Voice two years ago, and got freaked out by having to chant Gospels and especially Eucharistic Prayers, you told me not to worry, that by the time I got to play church and graduation, I'd be ready.

Not so much.

I'm cool with the deacon thing. But today I have to preach and preside at a service of public healing with Eucharist, and I'm way freaked out. Way, way, freaked out. We start at 1 pm CDT - if you think of it, say a little prayer that I survive, and preferably don't screw up too badly. (Oh, but I won't be able to post and let you know that I've survived until probably Saturday or Sunday, because as soon as classes are done today the seniors head off for our closing retreat.)

Well, peachy - you're on in 8 minutes or so, so I'll say a prayer.

But in our defense... at the time of alleged Lie, we didn't know you'd be sticking around another year. Perhaps the freaked-out-ness has to do with the graduation time loop you're in? Thats my story, I'm sticking to it, and you're gonna do great anyway.

I think you're off the hook on this anyway. I think you were still avoiding me at that point in the year.

Hey. I had no idea when I saw you yesterday. How did it go?

Susie said...

I wasn't avoiding *you* per se... just 'new friends' in general... but I thought i'd gotten over myself by spring.

But, we'll go with your "off the hook" response for now anyway.

Hope all went well! I've really enjoyed reading through your semimary experience, thanks for a little window into what its like. Please tell us how the service went!
