I just had a flashback because of a scene from Law and Order that just appeared on TV.
It was many, many years ago but once I attended an Episcopal church in Fort Worth with a new girlfriend. Hey, she was hot so I figured my Baptist God would cut me some slack.
Anyway, without any prep whatsoever (who knew you needed "prep"?), I walked in with her and had a seat. About 15 minutes into it, everyone turned to each other to exchange greetings (or so I thought.) To me, it seemed like the ol' Baptist "turn and say hi to your neighbor and greet them in Christian love" routine. So I turned to the lady to my right who said to me in the sweetest voice, "Peace be with you." A bit confused, but trying my best to fit right in, I replied, "Thanks! How are you?"
If you're laughing, you get it. If you've spent your whole life in a Baptist church, you won't.
