Deliver us

The other day we were praying our morning devotions in the family room, where the aftermath of the previous evening's birthday revelry still sprawled in all its glory (see below). Instead of concentrating on the prayers, I was staring straight at the bag of Aero candy on the fireplace hearth. Concluding the Lord's prayer, I caught myself before saying aloud, "...deliver us from Aero." 

Considering how much weight I'm trying to lose right now, and how much chocolate I ate the night of the party, I guess it was pretty much a Freudian slip. A bubbly orange, chocolate-coated Freudian slip.

  1. I've SO done that...thinking about something else while praying the rosary and accidently saying "Give us this day our seventeen...wait..what?"
