Not once but twice in my lifetime! What the hell am I doing? What the hell is wrong with me when it comes to funerals and rosaries?
I did it a couple of years ago and I did it again on Friday. A neighbor died. I took a friend to the rosary. I started off on the wrong foot by getting there a few minutes late. The place was packed and people were standing against the walls. I was tired and I didn't want to be standing. I spotted a pew close to the front and figured my friend and I could squeeze and sit our little bodies in between the people sitting there. It was a very tight squeeze and the people who had the misfortune to be forced to pull their shoulder blades between their breast bones, gave us very nasty looks.
I got on my knees, did the sign of the cross and joined everybody else in reciting the rosary.
After the rosary, my friend and I got in line to go to the coffin. When I got there to pay my last respects, my eyes bugged out because it was a man lying peacefully in his coffin. There was supposed to be an elderly lady.
Yes, I did it again! For the 2nd time in my life, I’ve attended the wrong rosary! The rosary I was supposed to be in was a few doors down the hall from where I was.
Has this ever happened to anyone? Am I the only one cursed with this insane stupidity?
