Why on earth is there a priest in our front lobby?

EDIT 10/27: Ah - that makes perfect sense.  Apparently he's our new security guard's brother, and came by to say "hi."  That's sweet, but our speculations were much more fun.

Somebody was very naughty? Exorcism? Person dressed up for Halloween too early?

Well, it's lawyers, so naughtiness and exorcism are possible. I actually mentioned exorcism as one of *my* first thoughts. :-)

the power of sportscenter compels you!

Out out you demons!

Either that or there's one hell of a funny new commercial coming up.

LOL! They do all the commercials on campus, so the first one is likelier.

Priests come in all sorts of varieties. They're not all in parishes. Some of them work for diocese as communications directors, and so would have every reason to be in a building of a media company. Having sung for the TV masses out of Hartford, I have some experience with this. It could very well have been a professional visit.

Of course, it could be somebody's brother, who's in town, meeting them for lunch. You never know.

Highly unlikely - we're the only department in the entire off campus building in a different town. I'm betting on the lunch. It WAS lunchtime.

It was just a very odd visual. He was cute.

Ah...cute priests. In Catholic circles they're called Father "What a Waste" (GRIN!)

That's okay, I just sent my best friend from high school, who just happens to be an Augustinian, an animated e-card taken from The Last Supper. Animated apostles wearing party hats arguing over what gift the got and who was supposed to bring the wine. When Jesus obligingly turns the pitcher of water in front of him into vino, they start calling out for all sorts of different drinks like he's the bartender. I'm wondering when he'll come up for air.

New concepts in followup careers for professional athletes?

Or ooooo....let us know if you've got the Hungarian skateboarding priest of youtube video fame! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvPVz8jzp5U)

Was Linda Blair coming down the stairs in creative ways?

Was he armed with a collection plate?

(Seriously, did you ever find out?)

I did - see the edit. Someone's brother.
Oct. 27th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
Ah I see ... the priest's seen enough Star Trek to know he should pray for his brother's safety...

Sister, actually, but the concept remains unchanged.

So I guess I should never visit you at work lest I raise suspicion.
Oct. 29th, 2010 01:09 am (UTC)
YOU are encouraged to visit me at work any time you like, dressed any way you want. I will drag you around and introduce you to all the people worth knowing.

If you want a picture sitting at the SportsCenter desk, I'll need advance notice, however.

Besides, they already think I'm nuts. You would merely enhance my reputation. :-D
