The Town Priest's Faux Pas

Back to my blog home page:

I was walking back from lunch yesterday when I passed the town priest rushing out of the building. I called out hello to him. He said a brisk, "Hello," but he didn't make eye contact. He quickly hopped into his convertible and sped away.

Hmmmmm. That was odd.

Later the nurse, a bright, young fellow, who is a "go-to" guy, popped his head into the rehab department.

"Guess what."

I turned my head to look at him.

"The priest gave Whitey a piece of host (Catholic communion wafer), and he choked on it."

It was obvious that he was on a feeding was hooked up right at the bedside! That meant he could not swallow.

Lesson of the Day
Check in with the priest
before he brings communion
to your tube feeders!
