Today is St Francis of Assisi's feast day. Apparently you can take your pets to church to get blessed by the priest. Last night we were discussing this because Roland was under the hammer from his other half to bring his dogs to church.
Rian said, "Does the priest anoint them with holy water?"
I said, "Do they bark in tongues?"
Rian laughed this wonderful high-pitched laugh like a woman. It was so great.

Just now I'm thinking: would the dogs drink out of the font like they would from a toilet? Would they hump the altar? Would they get into fights? It seems like a really dumb and sacrilegious combination, dogs and church. Yet really good too, in an anarchic Rodney Dangerfield/John Belushi kind of way.
