Yes, my friend did have a sense of humor about it. I guess he had no choice though, since I was laughing so hard at the time. Neither of us said anything about it to the sales rep's bosses, so he never lost his job over it. But it was a priceless memory for me. I've told that story numerous times and it never fails to crack people up. My ministry colleague set himself up for that remark, I guess.
I hope your sister gets a chuckle out of it. Sounds like her book would be interesting. I've always enjoyed spending time in Lancaster, PA. So the Amish have always been of interest to me.
