Two-year-old Katelyn was watching the children’s TV show “Blue’s Clues.” The episode featured a pizza, which Katelyn repeatedly referred to as “Pastor’s Pizza.”

The school principal, his wife, and their two sons had been invited to Saturday supper at a board member’s house. The board member and his wife put on quite a spread. After the meal, and after a final cup of coffee, the principal pushed his chair back from the table and stretched. “My, that was wonderful. It isn’t often we eat a meal like that,” he enthused.

“Neither do we,” quipped the board member’s young daughter, who was sitting next to the principal.
