Well....Who Knew?

This is just a weird, weird, funny thing. You may know that when you begin to have "mature" eyesight, small print can be a challenge, and you may end up guessing a little now and then. This usually works out well, since by the time you need to start guessing, you have lots of experience reading, and it's often pretty obvious what some "mystery" word is.

Once in a while though, mistakes are made. If you look at the page of music below, you'll see that it's from a choral version of a spiritual called "Elijah Rock." It's a very old arrangement, written in dialect, and in fact we did it when I was in high school, so I knew what the words were. When we ran through it in church choir this winter, a fellow soprano got a wondering look on her face when we came to this page, and asked questioningly, "Satan's a librarian?" Look below, and you'll see what she saw.

I've resisted posting this for a while, as it's not sewing related at all, but every time I think of it, I laugh, so why shouldn't we all enjoy? My personal modus operandi is to not hear exactly what someone said, and then I guess. That can be very entertaining, too.

Satan's feet are always a little cold!
