… You should have seen The Boy’s face light up with joy when he found out he is going to be a Torch Acolyte. Then you should have seen his dejected scowl when he found out the “torches” weren’t Flame Throwers. His lament … “But mom! They aren’t even torches at all! There are just like regular lanterns on poles. I thought I was gonna get to burn stuff. That was so misleading!”

On the ride home he made me even prouder by declaring that he was “so going to write a blog post about this!”

    I know exactly how the Boy feels. Disappointing.

  • TCN

    Well, look at it this way–with all those cassocks and vestments, maybe he can accidentally on purpose singe the edge of something and make a big stink. So, there's that.
