felis sollicita de sardinarum defectu
Kateri came running to me last Tuesday and said, Did you
see that article in the Republican about the sardines?
She made me drop what I was doing to go to the kitchen where
she had spread out the newspaper on the table. She pointed at
the article for me to read it. It had to do with the dearth of
sardines on the West Coast. Apparently, we wont be getting
any sardines this year from the California fisheries. Well
I said these things are cyclic. Im sure God will
provide! Do you know any prayers for sardines?
she asked me. No I said. Well, make one up!
she said impatiently. I bowed my head and said, Dear God,
please dont let us run out of sardines! She said,
Amen! Amen! Amen!
