Ash Wednesday

Whenever you go to get ashes, and then go out into public, you'll get at least one person who will say to you "Uh, you got a little something up here", as they point to their forehead. This is due to the fact that the "cross" on the forehead usually looks like a smudge, like maybe you were working on your car engine and laid your head on the radiator for a rest.

Now, I know our Priests (or their duly appointed assistants) can't be expected to be Artistes, but I propose that those of us with artistic tendencies offer our services; we can apply ashes with flair while the Priest recites the "Remember, man...".

All this for just, say, $1 a head. Say, if I could hit a few of the larger Ash Wednesday Masses, a Professional Ash Wednesday Ash Application Technician such as myself could pull in some serious coinage. Plus, since it's Ash Wednesday, I wouldn't have to take a lunch break, giving me more time to dash about town to the next mass.

I think I'll write to my Bishop...
