To be clear, I’m talking about the online-radio app, not the charm bracelets.
Technically, it’s just an app, not an appliance… but I shouldn’t have been surprised.
Sunday evening, we had our Liberian friends and several friends from church at our house for a potluck dinner. I set Pandora on an uplifting worship music station and put it through the speakers. Everyone arrived, we set up the food, and people visited while munching chips and salsa. Then it was time to start eating in earnest.
We bowed our heads for prayer, and Brent thanked the Lord for the friends and food. He had barely started speaking when I heard a feminine voice say, “Uh-ohhh…” Thinking something had spilled, I glanced around to see whether anyone needed a towel or mop.
No, all heads were bowed.
That’s when I heard the voice again. This time I realized it was coming from the speaker above my head.
It was a commercial…
… a commercial for diarrhea medicine.
Could there be a more ominous start to a meal?
We got through the prayer with only a few snickers. Now we’re all thankful, not only for friends and food, but for laughter. And the fact no one needed any medication after dinner.
