News, but not the serious kind
I’ll NEVER do that again, I promise!
Blog Guy, every year at Easter time I see lots of photos of “penitents” from different places, which I gather has to do with repenting for sins and stuff like that. I was hoping you could elaborate a bit for your readers.
Not without doing actual research, which takes too much effort.
But I was hoping you could just make up stuff, as usual.
Okay. It appears some penitents have to wear hooded outfits which are VERY unfortunate in design, if you catch my meaning.
I do indeed. Those folks must have done something pretty bad. But what’s the very, very WORST they can make you do if you’re a penitent?
Well, from what I can see, you could have to make chit-chat with Melanie Griffith.
No way! The actress from that “Working Girl” movie?
Yep, but with her big old shoulder tattoo showing, and everything.
I can’t believe that. Couldn’t I hang out with Sigourney Weaver? She was in the same movie.
Of course not. You don’t get to choose your own actress. Whatever it is you did to deserve this, they don’t want you ever to do it again.
Don’t worry, I won’t!
