What's for lunch?

Long before my arrival in the late Summer of 2008 St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Houston, TX began hosting a weekly Spaghetti Luncheon every Thursday afternoon for the neighborhood.  The luncheon seemed to have become a staple of the community; Orthodox and non-Orthodox from the Greater Houston area would enjoy a simple, bargain-priced, yet delicious and filling lunch.

Today (Being Thursday), an older gentleman stopped by the Church Office today around lunchtime; the conversation went down like this:

Older Gentleman:  "What time does the Spaghetti Luncheon end today?"

Church Secretary:  "Sir, we stopped doing the Spaghetti Luncheon at least 5 years ago."

Older Gentleman:  "Oh really? That's a shame...it sure was delicious.  Mind if I use your bathroom, since I'm here?"

Church Secretary:  "Of course, Sir."

*Older Gentleman begins walking towards the Church Hall*

Church Secretary:  "Sir, the bathrooms are down this hallway!"

Older Gentleman:  "Oh, ya'll moved the bathrooms."

Church Secretary:  "No, it's just a new building."
