This Week in Janice: Re-WASPing Myself

27 Oct

I like to joke about being a WASP, but it’s not an exaggeration. I really am that white. Although not white enough to realize that I could be de-activated from the Episcopalian Church. What the egg salad sandwich is that about?

Subj: Reactivating your church membership – permission por favor

Teddy & I stopped by [the Church of the] Holy Spirit late this morning-it is very very spruced up and much larger than it used to be -$$$infusion? from someone? I looked into activating my church membership and yours-then we can be listed in the members’ booklet, etc. Is that okay with you- ?-they will send you stuff- like time of Xmas services, etc. (Thank GOD-literally!-Episcopalians have an 11 o’clock Sunday service still. So maybe I’ll go some.) Okay, yes, they will also send a landfill of “send $$ now” letters, but I will cover you, modest donation wise. Saw many names from the past on the bulletin board. Looked like some of your school chums’ families are still there.
Of course, being Episcopalians, they could not find us on the computer system, but the Church Secretary is going to look into it , since I told her all of our records where still there and you had been confirmed there, so she will search and call me. The “Rector’s house” next door had a new Prius parked in it’s driveway – beige, of course. (How Epis. of them!!) This was part of our 2 hour walk- Teddy came home all energized. We went too the Church, the Bank, and the Library. He is locked up and I am having a cup of tea. Holy Spirit does a “Blessing of the Pets” every year in early October, so Tedster can join the Church too!!!! How you doing? Take care, Love, MOM

    Wow. Wow. This is like the #1 explanation of Episcopalians think. Of course, it can only become clear when translated into crazy (thanks Janice), removing the filter. If it was about Unitarianism it would be about anti-Racism and involve 4-5 “go obamas.” This email also fully explains why my father feels compelled to make fun of Episcopalians.

    Beige Prius = Episcopalian, huh? I never knew. I also had no idea that Episcopalians were so inept at computer usage. I’m so glad I have Janice to enlighten me on these things.

    So if you lose your Protestant status, you’re simply a WAS?
