Why are human beings such a creature of habit? A few sunday's ago the minister said he would like to tell everyone to move to another pew. He said he probably won't do it but he would like to. I have been thinking John and I should surprise him and march right down to the front next Sunday and sit on the front row but we probably won't because we are two of those creatures of habit. When we started going to that church we sat on the back pew left side. We did this for several sundays and then a very large younger (then us) woman arrived before us and sat in "our" pew. After a few sundays we realized this was "her" pew so we claimed the back pew right side right behind the elderly man who sits in the second to the back pew right side. He sits next to the wall. It is probably his comfort zone because he often falls asleep in church. I'm not putting him down because he has a handicaped daughter at home so he may be up with her some at night and be tired. Over the years I've heard remarks about people who sit on the back row but what is wrong with that? Reminds me of when my oldest daughter and her friend were young and decided to go to church by themselves. The next sunday I ask her if they were going again. She said well Mom we don't know where to sit. I said you can sit anywhere you want. She said no a lady told us we were in "her" seat so we had to move. John and I couldn't sleep tonight so he was playing switchy changy with the remote. There is nothing on TV late at night except weird shows. Who in their right mind would enjoy watching someone murdered? One show some kids in their prom clothes had a wreck. One kid was knocked out on the pavement and one stayed with him while the others went to call for help. When the wrecker drived arrived he bent down and took the boys face in his hands and just broke his neck. Everytime John changed the channel it was about the same speed show. Seems to me if a person doesn't quite have all his/her ducks in a row this type of show could give them an idea.
