A Mother's Day Slip

Yesterday in church there was a nice Mother's Day program where all the mothers and grandmothers got roses. After the presentation our pastors said to the congregation, (in Hindi), "All you girls that are unmarried, don't worry, we'll do our best to make you mothers as soon as possible."

There was a small smattering of laughter and the pastor himself sort of laughed and shook his head and (wisely) just moved on...

Sometimes things just don't come out the way you mean them to.
