Awesome story [/quote]
Thanks. Kind of random, I know.
Who would think a singer could do that to a grown man? And he’s not even a good singer. Just a heck of a song writer.[/quote]
Mostly Archbishops and Cardinals, haven’t met the Pope though.
Met Cardinal Dolan (the man who prayed at the end of the DNC and RNC) not too long ago when I went up to New York for a meeting, I was silent for half a second before he had me laughing and then I went on like a giddy school girl trying to remember every joke from Fulton J. Sheen, Bill Cosby, the Cardinal himself, &c. and every funny anecdote I could come up with to make the man laugh as hard as I was. We were late to the meeting by 5 minutes or so, because we’d been standing there for fifteen minutes joking. To break the tension he put the blame on me and the group we walked in with started laughing again.
The only reason I guess he tried to make me laugh is that he probably he saw that I couldn’t speak beyond nervously mumbling “Your Eminence” and kissing his ring when I first met him. By the way, this was in front of his entourage of Archbishops, Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, whom I forgot to pay my respects.
No one probably will get it, but he’s been a hero of mine for a few years now.
