You may be familiar with the term, “wedding crasher,” an uninvited guest who manages to blend in with the invited guests and may remain undetected. Well, at a recent wedding, while helping prepare the lunch, someone spotted an uninvited guest lurking about.
”What should we do about the gopher in the kitchen?” he asked.
”The what?” was the surprised response. A nearby door had been left ajar to allow a cool breeze to flow into the kitchen—the same door through which the gopher entered the building.
A resourceful individual managed to chase the creature into a nearby utility room and shut the door, but not before several children became aware of its existence.
”Don’t kill it!” one child said.
”I want to take it home for a pet,” said another little girl.
Then the voice of realism piped up from one little boy who declared, ”Don’t you know? Gophers are for shooting!”
Before long we managed to satisfy all the kids by “shooing,” and not “shooting,” the gopher into a bucket and releasing it into the great outdoors. We did however, capture the moment by taking a few photos of the “wedding crasher.”
