Wave ‘Em Like Ya Just Don’t Care…

You know that part in the mass, the sursum corda?
In case you were wondering, it goes like this…

Priest: Lift up your HEARTS.
People: We lift them up to the Lord.

Hearts. Hands. I know they sound fairly similar and all.
But yeah… you can stop doing this now.

    Have you ever had someone else lift up your hands at the end of the Lords Prayer? Can we convene another Geneva Convention for that barbarity? But, I was the fool that stretched out my hand in the first place. Sucker.

      No, you don’t know how to play this game. When the bastards grab your hands (and you should have had them firmly clasped together before you gave them the opening) give them a DEATH grip and keep your hand FIRMLY down, enough to yank their arm out of the socket, when they try the “raise arms like morons” business. If there’s anything I’d like to dearly swat the Charismatics for, it’s inflicting this “custom” on us — “Yes, I really want to hold your hand, especially in cold and flu season, after you’ve been wiping the snots off your two-year old with a kleenex you’ve had since 1972.”

        I have been schooled. But I know next time the offending person next to me is sure to be a winsome child, with innocent, limpid eyes, offering me his wee hand, like Oliver Twist with his little empty bowl. See? Still screwed.

    That’s why I sit next to a pillar. No handholding.
