Sometimes people get a bit carried away with the "oooooOOOOooooohs" and the "aaaAAAaaaaahhs!" and the whole rapture of a moment. Do you ever suddenly find yourself looking around and smirking and thinking, "Bloody hell, if there is 'something' watching us right now I bet their laughing their head off."
It's not fault, I'm just a realist, I find it hard to do excited delerium. When others do, it kind of kills the sincerity of a moment for me.
I remember once back in my school days we were practicing for a school carol service in the local church. The priest was going all over the top with his readings and waving his arms around and talking all loud and warbley, beads of sweat dripping down his bright red face! and right as he paused this kid broke wind. The reverberations on his wooden seat echoed through the beautiful acoustics of the church and all of a sudden everything the priest had been doing and saying seemed a little over the top and pretencious.
I've always had this thought in the back of my head since that day. "If someone broke wind right now, would it make me look rediculous?"
Yes I'm saying the difference between believable religion and delusion is flatulence.
Hopefully this hasn't offended anyone.
To me personally there is no such thing as laughing at inapropraite moments. Like breaking wind, better out than in. Either people laugh with me or not, but I know I feel better.
