Gurgles at the Engaged Encounter

Randy's hands

When the priest raised sexual relations,
my fiance’s intestines gurgled.

Other couples turned and stared,
so of course we giggled.

The priest reassured us;
some couples find this awkward,

but he didnโ€™t hear the ungodly sounds
coming from my loveโ€™s nether regions.

    This is good. I like the dichotomy of the priest & “ungodly sounds.” ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I would have giggled too. And your use of ungodly is such a great contrast to the setting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    ha! Even funnier that the priest thought you guys were embarrassed by what he was talking about. Totally cute!

      Yes–that’s what made it so funny to us. I wasn’t sure if that came through clearly enough in my 42 words, so thanks for the comment!

    Love the tension between the godly and ungodly here. I also liked the reminder of love in the middle of this awkward scene.
