Tongue Twister

Each week I change the recording on our voice mail at church.  This week it went like this:

What I meant to say:  Thank you for calling St. Andrew's Catholic Church.  Please join us for our Fish Frys every Friday during Lent, serving USA Raised Catfish from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.  Our weekend Masses are Saturday, 5:30 pm, Sunday, 9:30 am.  Weekday Masses this week:  8:00 am, Tuesday through Friday.  Office hours, 1:00 to 5:00 pm, Tuesday and Thursday.  If you need assistance, please leave a message and we'll return your call as soon as possible.

What I actually said:

Take one:  Thank you for calling St. Andrew's Catholic Church. Please join us for our Frish Fr...

Take two:  Thank you for calling St. Andrew's Catholic Church (notice, I have this part down pat).  Please join us for our Fish Frys every Friday during Lent serving USA Rsd C...

Take three:  Thank you, etc.  Please join us for etc (finally made it through the tongue twister!).  Our weekend Masses etc. (keep on going girl, it's going good).  Weekday Masses this week:  8:00 am Truesday... (crap)

Take four:  Same as take one

Take five:  Thank you for calling etc.  Please join us...  cough cough

Take six:  Thank you... voice cracks

Take seven:  Thank you for calling (voice cracks and I keep going) 

All in the day of a church lady.  Is crap a bad word?

LOL, no crap is not a bad word, but I would make sure its not in the message :) unless they thought maybe you were serving carp fish and you mispronounced it :)

that would be a nightmare to have to record a message weekly like this; I think it would be the least favorite of my job duties :)

betty

LOL, crap is only a bad word if you think it's a bad word.
