Hannah and I were standing on the patio greeting people as they arrived. Usually, there’s an audio recording of the bell that is played when it’s time to go into the Main Hall for the service. But the bell recording wasn’t working today, so Chaz had to come out and tell people it was time for the service. A couple of us more childish types started imitating bells by saying, “Dong! Dong! Dong!”
Which reminded me of a stupid joke, which I immediately had to tell. “Hannah,” I said, “What’s brown and sounds like a bell?”
She thought for a moment. “I don’t know,” she said.
“Dung!” I said.
She laughed. But I was kind and refrained from telling her another bell joke: What’s pinches and sounds like a bell? Tongs!
