Manda: I need to figure out which church to attend this weekend.
Introverted Manda: why not just go where we went last week?
Manda: because part of the benefit of being in the big city for school is that I’ll get to experience a bunch of new opportunities.
Introverted Manda: whose dumb idea was that?
Manda: Mine. Now let me figure out the streetcar routes.
Introverted Manda: you know, if we go where we went last week you don’t need to figure all that out because you can just walk.
Introverted Manda: how many churches are on your list to check out?
Introverted Manda: six?! That’s too many! Remember, your husband is a psychologist and remember how he likes to go on and on about the paradox of choice? Listen to him. Let’s just go back to the church from last week.
Introverted Manda: but the church we went to last week is big. You can hide. You can sit through the service and not be pestered by nosy extroverts.
Introverted Manda: the church you went to last week has contemporary worship. You like contemporary worship.
Manda: I know that.
Introverted Manda: and they share communion every week. That’s very important.
Slothful Manda: hey why don’t we just skip church and go see a movie instead?
Manda and Introverted Manda: NO!
* Sometime Sunday afternoon*
Chuck: So where did you go to church this week?
Manda: the same church as last week. 😳
