Only On a Sunday - editing needed!

This Sunday was a potluck, and after the meal, I was gathering up the various books, papers, and pens my family collects.  My eye landed on a notice handed out with the bulletin.  It was about some Christmas gift boxes we are gathering to share.  I had wanted to do these with my kids, but ust hadn't gotten to it yet, so I skimmed it to see if there was still time, and I read this last sentence:

"There are empty boxes still at the church in the entry if you are still wanting to fill one with your child."

I giggled.  I passed it to a lady nearby me, and she read it and snorted.  We decided we had better choose a bigger box if it was going to fit the kids that had been misbehaving after chuch.

"Merry Christmas!  Here's a teenager!"

I remember enjoying the lessons in school on misplaced modifiers. Gave us something to chuckle about. That's a good one.

Oh, that's hilarious! To be honest, there are moments when I would like to fill a box with a kid and donate!
