Churchy Anecdote

So I was going to Mass, having just gotten up from the Communion rail (it's an old-fashioned parish where you kneel and receive on the tongue) and lo & behold the silence of church is shattered by my cell phone playing "When the Saints Go Marchin' In" at Def Leopard-volume. I about jumped out of my skin - likely literally leaped - and assumed my phone was in one of my pockets and so patted myself down in a wild self-frisk. (My very first liturgical dance.) Very embarrassing.

Well, turns out I didn't have my cell phone with me and someone else in church had/has the exact same ring tune. Now there's a first. Live long enough and you too might do a liturgical dance after receiving Communion.
