Singspiration this Friday was kind of odd.

When Jeff C. first opened it up to requests, there was silence. "This has never happened before," he said. (Usually people already have their hands up, and some people will just call out numbers.)

When we got to the Christmas carols section, the first hymn requested was a generic "Jesus is awesome" sort of hymn. And someone else requested "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming." Elyse and I were both like, "This is a hard song to sing." Don T. didn't even know the hymn. (At least we sang it with the held notes instead of all the weird slurs, so it actually felt fairly easy to sing.) When I told Ari this story, she said, "Maybe they figure they'll get to sing the songs like 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing' on Christmas Day, but the only way they're going to get to sing 'Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming' is if they request it."

***

There was a Sunday NYTimes out during Coffee Hour at FCS, and an article on the front page opened, "It sounds like a tough sell: a game that involves catapulting birds at elaborate fortresses constructed by evil pigs."

Keith and I were both like, "How is that a tough sell? That sounds awesome."
