. . . not on my "a" game . . .

. . . that's for sure . . .
. . . "the facts were these" . . .
{i miss that show, by the way}
. . . it's my month to play the organ
in good ol' hp ward . . .
{i'd love it if every month were my month ~
it's the best job in the church!}
. . . the opening hymn was announced
~ a favorite ~
#144 secret prayer . . .
. . . the intro went off without a hitch . . .
[the part marked with little brackets]
. . . continuing on . . .
. . . i played,
barbara directed,
and the congregation sang
three whole verses . . .
. . . then i stopped . . .
. . . but she didn't and they didn't . . .

. . . because, sadly, . . .
. . . there are four verses . . .
. . . i can only imagine
how my red face looked
with my aqua sweater . . .
{we did eventually sing the fourth verse}
. . . i got a sub for tomorrow . . .
. . . i'm going to another ward . . .

I was wondering if you were gonna blog about that! It's good to see that you're not 100% perfect! I hope you can settle for 99.9%!

You must have jinxed me. This morning, after I placed the hymn numbers on the board, listened to our Bishopric announce the opening hymn #228, I began to play our closing hymn, #229. Got all the way through the intro, and then kept right on going. All the time wondering why nobody was singing! It wasn't until after the opening prayer that our chorister informed me I had played the wrong song. I'm such a dork!

Hahahaha. I was ward organist in my ward from the time I was about 13 till I went away to school. I've made every mistake in the book, including dropping the hymnbook on the keys during "quiet time." I'm really not even an organist..... apparently (for reals) they were desperate.
