Post 1601. Friday Fictioneers

It’s some time since I last told you what my friend Rosey has been up to, but this week's photo of bread reminded me of something!


Rosey rarely goes to church, but the other Sunday she wanted to attend Holy Communion. Being a bit out of practice she asked if I'd accompany her. Apart from occasionally sitting not standing and standing not sitting, she did pretty well. Midway she pointed out the service sheet said gluten-free communion bread was available which seemed to tickle her! Then in a hushed whisper, she asked me what the sanctified wine was; was it like Sancerre? I thought she was joking but with Rosey, you can’t be sure. I was worried that whilst receiving communion she’d ask if they served Chardonnay! Happily, she didn't.

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting, and to Kelvin M Knight for the photo prompt.

  3. Being a non-Catholic married into a Catholic family this reminded me of several funerals, weddings and communions I've had to attend! Rosey and I would get along1 :-)

  4. Oh she should have asked. Some churches are far too stuffy.

  17. She sounds like fun! I went to a Catholic service once and it was a bit confusing. A lot more audience participation than I remember from Methodist church :-)

  20. Maybe the priest would disapprove of her but I'm sure, Jesus would approve of such an authentic person :)

  21. Good to see Rosey back here. I've met her through your words many a time! Not many dull moments with her for sure.

    (I've kind of been missing with comments too, so good to be back here as well.)

  24. So intriguingly funny.
    Didn't know if I should laugh at her antics, or see it as a sign of something else or just a comment on the vagaries in a church service!
