The Truth Comes Out

"Nonnno says he can sleep with his eyes wide open," announces Nicholas.

"I think Nonno is pulling your leg," I reply.

"Actually, I can do that," says Jonathan. "Sometimes, when I am altar serving, it's like I regain consciousness and the homily is halfway over."

I think I should be a very good friend of Nicholas.

By the way, may I suggest dark glasses?

I´m sure Nicholas would improve his performance.

Totally possible...my Nonna slept with her eyes open, as did my father, as I was also known to in a college class or two!

Luciano dice di essere perfettamente sveglio anche quando russa quasi come Dwight.

Love this, and my altar servers could probably attest to their own ability to do this.

Me, too - I just can't stay focused.

Oh and that angelic smile to illustrate....marvelous! :)

(I sometimes bite my tongue a bit to resist the temptation to yell out at inappropriate times...think Nicolas and I may be kindred!)

Cheryl Lage said...

I mean Jonathan...although my willingness to believe tall tales makes me identify with Nicolas, too.... ;)
