Another Sunday Saga

Another Sunday Saga 2/5/12
On way down steps to go out to car for church service, Master Po say in pain, “Oh these knees!” Mrs. Po reply, “I have the keys.”
As service about to start, infant in pew behind us pick great opportune time to get sick. As parent and grandparent, Master Po not surprised by this happening. Young children cannot control sudden urge to vomit violently and make loud puking sounds, resonating in church like bells chiming during Holiday time.
These sounds occur for women, that is….You see, women, particular moms, grandmas, K-g teachers and female doctors have ear for this sound. Despite this regurgitation taking place no further way than 10 centimeters from Master Po ear, he not hear it at all. But Mrs. Po, honorable Dr. Jennifer Murnyack and about six other ladies come popping out of woodwork, ceiling fans and heat ducts like magic, to answer infant distress signals.
Master Po not know what is happening till he see mother running down stairs with her hand over infants mouth desperately trying to catch contents before they hit floor. Sense of smell second sense to make Master Po aware of mishap. Hearing way down on list.
Rest of service go well despite ominous start. We go to Spring House restaurant for breakfast afterwards, and Master Po lose balance as he sits in booth with his large mass. Suddenly booth vibrate, lights flicker, windows rattle and window shades shake. Trembles rate 8.9 on Richter Scale are felt in Woodbury 10 miles to the south.
Waitress come running over, to make Master Po feel better and say, “Oh, I see you got our bouncy booth.” - This not help Master Po feel any better, because we frequent restaurant fairly often and never see this happen to anyone else.
We get settled and I remark about the nice Christmas decorations around dining area. Mrs. Po not say one word, knowing that Master Po is color blind, and decorations are heart shaped, and all Red for Valentine’s Day.
