stupid things on any given Sunday...

... being caught by your parish priest trying to tame down your son's cowlicks with the holy water.

I have used the holy water to clean up where a kid of mine picked a scab on the way to Mass and I didn't notice the blood until after Mass started.

What, you were out of spit? I thought moms never ran out of spit.

What's the problem?
Where does the priest put the holy water when he baptizes you? (on your head)
Where do you start with the holy water when you bless yourself on the way in or out of church? (on your head)
And probably more examples could be found.

Besides, a boy with a vocation (he's in our prayers) can't have too much holy water around (or on?) him...

Ah, tell the good Father to calm down...at least The Boy ain't spittin' in the Holy Water font!

If it's like my brothers' cowlicks, it's probably been cursed enough to need the holy water. :)
