TITLE: Those two get me so out of rest!

Well here I am again Lord needing to sort my heart out. If only I could have remembered; Every time I open the door to Mr Andhe I get no rest. Actually his wife is as bad. Just as I am going along all peaceful one or the other arrives and they are the biggest gossips going. I should know by now they do me no good at all.

It is always the same. One or the other of them invites themselves in just as I feel annoyed with one of my brethren. I am sure they lie in wait because that is the only time they ever knock on my door.

Take the other day. Sister Jones forgets to take the tea towels home to wash after church and there is Mrs Andshe on my doorstep next day. . "And she never dries the cups properly, and she never tidied out the tea cupboard last Thursday week and she never ever said hello last Thursday" and she therefore must have contributed to my general feeling that the church is unfriendly and I better leave.

Mr Andhe arrived soon after. He reminded me that Pastor forgot to ring me last Tuesday week and he never said sorry as he has still forgotten and he is always forgetting and he wasn't wearing matching socks last Sunday and he talked about what the Ushers should wear and he therefore is a hypocrite and I better leave the church on the strength of it because he is not a pastor at all. I mean to say: it is hypocrisy and he

Those two are tricksters. They would have me losing my peace over unwashed tea cups and odd socks. I hate the way they get me so out of peace.

I think I am going to ban them. Every time I open the door I end up completely out of rest and they are not good characters to have in my life any more.

The word pun on the names has just kicked in! A clever take on the subject.
