Family Fussing About the Sermon Being too Long

A typical American family was driving home from church. Dad was fussing about the sermon being too long and sort of boring. Mom said that she thought the organist played a little too loud during the second hymn we sang. Sis, who was a music major in college, said that the soloist sang about a half note off key during most of the song. Grandma said she couldn’t hear very well; they were sitting in a bad place. Little Willie listened to all of this and started to fuss about the woman with the big hat who sat in front of him. He couldn’t see around her. And then he nudged his dad and said, “But, Dad, you gotta admit, it was a pretty good show for a dollar.” (Knights book of new Illustrations).
