It was a lovely Christmas Eve service at Jeff and Carol's local Episcopalean church. The only problem was when it came time to use the kneelers. daisy_knotwise told me, "You don't have to kneel." But I'd spent two years in an Episcopalean school, so I knew how to handle it.
Unfortunately, the kneeler didn't. About ten seconds after I'd settled onto the kneeler next to Gretchen, the wood brace gave way with a crack like the sound of a rifle.
We decided to give up kneeling for the duration. And I think I'd better lose some weight.
