I sat down for Scott's lesson trying to focus on what he was saying... but my mind kept wandering (more like running) back to this problem. All of the sudden I had a marvelous epiphany! I had to fix it, and I couldn't want to wait until Scott was done, because everyone would be walking around in the packed hallways and I knew everyone would see. So car keys in hand I quietly left to my car. I remember 2 weeks ago I had purchased a yard and a half a black swimsuit fabric- and of course it was still in my car. I got that and again b-lined to the bathroom, quietly avoiding the few greeters and security team in the foyer. I wrapped the fabric around me twice and tucked it very carefully under my belt. If I moved even ever so slightly it would start to fall out and be seen at the hem of my dress. I walk carefully for the rest of church, sat of most of the time, and took lots of bathroom breaks to re-stuff my "slip." I was so afraid it was all going to fall out at once. I even had to leave service a few minutes early and was petrified to think that while walking out in the isle it would fall out for everyone to see.The second I got home, and I mean that SECOND, all the fabric slipped out and laid there. A giant black puddle of fabric at my feet. Not a second too soon.
And such was my morning.
