Never Say “Condominium” in Church

So, I sat in church last Wednesday night with General Mayhem. One of many songs had just started when he said, “Hey, dad, this is my favorite condom…” The music swelled loudly. He continued, “It’s the most comfortable one I’ve ever been in.”

My head almost snapped off my neck as I turned to him.  Had I just heard what I thought I heard? Favorite condom? The most comfortable one he’s ever been in?  Exactly how many has he been in?  Then I saw that he was holding up a Bic pen and pointing to the logo printed on the barrel.  It was from a condominium we stayed at while on vacation in Florida a few years ago. He had noticed the look on my face when I turned to him, and his puzzled expression told me that he thought he was in trouble.

“Do you have any idea what I thought you just said?” I asked him.

“What?”

“I didn’t hear the ‘minium,’” I explained.

I stopped talking and started singing.  He didn’t fully recover until the last verse. I’ve never seen his face so red, or watched him laugh so hard.

Never say “condominium” in church.
