The rest of my family walked to church today so they were already seated when I arrived. Everything was calm and quiet, and I hadn’t really registered that Rose was gone using the bathroom. When she returned, I took note of everything she did in the first 5 minutes of church. Here’s my list:
During the opening song she comes running up one aisle, runs across the front of the chapel, and sits down next to me.
She’s brought a torn piece of toilet paper from the bathroom, and she uses it like a ruler to measure the top of a hymnbook.
She balls the paper up and puts it in her shoe.
She puts her foot in her shoe.
She takes her shoe off and retrieves the wad of toilet paper.
She puts the wad of paper in her mouth and chews on it.
She takes off her other shoe.
She buckles her shoes so that one strap is linked through the other.
Holding her shoes in her hand, she leaves the bench, runs back up the aisle, across the front of the chapel, and sits down on the other side of the bench by Dean.
After that I couldn’t see her anymore, so things got a lot less entertaining for me.
