28. I guess some priests don't read the bible still
Father told us in Church today that Mary is seen at the Miracle at Cana and then not again until the Crucifixion. He must have forgotten about that little embarrassing episode where Jesus's brothers (?!?) dragged her to confront Jesus to demand that she tell Jesus to stop making trouble and come on home. It just goes to show that we all remember the parts that we like the best.

By the way, does anyone realize how subversive today's reading from the Hebrew scriptures really is? All right, David, (and by extension, all you shakers and makers thoughout history), go ahead and build your temple. Just ry to box me in. But stand back and watch out to see what I and a little teenage girl, the lowest of the low, intend to spring on you. It's all wrapped up in solemn language, but it's worthy of Anansi the Spider.
