Street Lethal 6-4-12 Part 1

The one in which Chuck and Chris become part of New York’s Brower Boy gang, bear attacks, and Truman Show syndrome.  I have to admit, it’s pretty funny.

Eating Habits

So, after Trunk or Treat, all of those that stayed to the end of clean up went to IHOP (that’s the international house of pancakes…not prayer).  We ordered and got our food, and Pastor Dave also got his food.  Just by looking at what he got, I could tell it was crepes with hollandaise sauce on it.  Before even tasting it, he picks up the Old Fashioned syrup container (not to be confused with the butter pecan one, which looks very similar) and starts pouring it all over his crepes.  Many times crepes are served with something sweet so syrup is not out of the question, but with hollandaise sauce?  Then he proceeded to salt them.  I don’t care who you are, salt and syrup is delicious.  At this point I ask him what he is doing and what exactly he ordered.  He can’t remember, so we ask the waiter.  Dave got the Chicken Florentine Crepes.  Here is the description of them from the menu, “Chicken Breast strips sauteed with fresh spinach, mushrooms and onions in light seasoning.  Rolled inside two delicate crepes with swiss cheese and topped with rich hollandaise.”

Now if that doesn’t scream “pour syrup on me!”, I don’t know what does.  So I told the waiter that Dave had poured syrup on his dinner.  His response was, “WHAT?!?!?!” and his eyes bugged out so much I thought I was going to have to catch them and put them back into their sockets.  Then when he found out it was Dave he said, “Oh it’s a breakfast food, so you can pour syrup on it…plus he’s paying so I have to be nice.”

Dave then decides that regular syrup isn’t doing the trick, so he goes for the strawberry syrup.  At this point, our table had ridiculed him so much he decided to go to another table where he wouldn’t be oppressed for his eating habits.  But we snagged a picture (below) before he left us.

 

I think though that Dave was living out Psalm 63:5 “My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”  We were praising God for a great Trunk or Treat night, and eating rich food.  Rich, hollandaised, old fashioned syruped, salted, strawberry syruped, food.  How sweet it was.

My long lost sister

So apparently my parents have another kid, other than my older brother and younger sister, that my siblings and I never knew about.  She is a bit older than my older brother and was shipped to England at an early age and left to fend for herself.  However, her recent popularity has brought to light (thanks to the ever encouraging Pastor Dave) my uncanny resemblance to her.  This led me to some deep soul searching.  And thanks to a Maury Povich DNA test, it’s been confirmed that I have a 47-year old sister.

So there you have it.  The proof is in the pictures.  My long lost sister is Susan Boyle, the amazing woman who everyone was ready to laugh off the stage and instead ended up crying as they were put in their place.  The words of Jesus in Matthew 7:1-2 comes to mind.  “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.  For in the same way you judge others, you too will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”  I think Susan Boyle is a prime example that I am so willing to judge people based on looks, clothing, and thickness of eyebrows.  However, when I stop to see people how Jesus sees them, I see a beautiful woman singing a song that joins with creation and says, “God is awesome and worthy of worship.”  May our lives represent Christ well as they sing the wonderfulness of our Savior.
