How to Not be Bored in Church

I discovered a mindless new game today you might want to try during a boring Mass. I was looking at the book on the altar and noticing that there are tons of words you can make out of the letters in “SACRAMENTARY.” So, here the rules, words must have at least 4 letters, cannot use a plural of the same word but you can use a plural of a 3 letter word (like “car”) to make it 4 letters. See how you do! Love, Mom

      Hang on, I invented the “I’m bored in church” game decades ago.

      We had one as well; it’s called “Keep blinking or the ride home will be monumental”.

      Our mom is the Original Church Lady; going to church nowadays and seeing parents bring TOYS for their kids during Mass sends her into apoplectic (sp) fits on every ride heading home….

      Honestly, if this mom is so bored, she should just stay home….

      hahaha. I love this. If my grandparents had been able to make us heathens go to church I’m sure Mom would have done something similar…

      Sometimes mass is boring. Doesn’t make anyone a bad person. Doesn’t affect anyone else’s enjoyment of mass. This mother was playing a game in her head, I can’t see how that bothers anyone else.

      I love going to mass, but for some reason, I sometimes can’t concentrate on the homily, which sometimes drags. So I should never go because sometimes I get bored sometimes?

      well Jen, I suppose if you ever get really bored you could see how many times you could use the word “sometimes” to explain yourself.

      The clearest word which comes to mind the quickest is SCAM.
      How fitting since it’s about church.

      Nick, you could think of how much you love criticizing others. You’d be busy all day then.

      Jen, criticize? or…….just the facts. Didn’t mean to upset you. I will pray for you to forgive me when I’m bored.

      i knew the feeling…. but i dont have to deal with it anymore because i got kicked out of church last week. i was just sitting in my pew, quietly, contemplating our lord and wether he would get annoyed if he heard the preacher drone on about the gospels… when the person in the pew behind me farts. REALLY loudly. i get a case of the uncontrollable giggles. and then i am practically rolling on the floor dying of hysteria. so i get told to leave and not to come anymore. i say fine. i found it boring anway.

      Hmm…I always get really bored in church. (My parents are strictly Christian and I am not. They force me to go to church and sit next to them so I can’t use my phone). I think I’ll try this game today at the Boring Mass and see if it gets rid of my boredom. Thanks :)
