The merry month of May

May is a popular month for First Communions which had my friend remembering her all-time favorite story from her days as a 2nd grade teacher. Seems she practiced for the big day with Necco wafers and constant encouragement to the children to put their tongue out so that the priest could put the communion host on it. On the actual date all was going smoothly (so she thought) until right in the middle of the distribution to the long line of children she saw the priest, who knew of her practice technique, start to blush and obviously stifle a smile. Afterward she asked him what happened. He answered, "Everything was going fine until this one little boy blurted out before I could get in a word, 'Chocolate, please.'"
