The Rectory Bites Back

Terrie M Scott
Rectory Chronicles: "The Sedamsville Rectory bites back!" Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later, I suppose. I was scratched at the Rectory the other night. My first time! Up until now, I had only been pushed! We are working in the small priest room, doing some painting, trying to move forward with renovations.


Tim was on the ladder painting towards the ceiling and I was painting near the baseboards. I stood up to get some more paint and as I was walking across the room, something clamped down on my arm. Stopped me in my tracks and then I felt a stinging, burning across my arms. It felt like Freddy Kruger scraping knifes across my forearm. Hurt like hell! I called out to Tim and there were three deep marks running from my wrist to my elbow. The burning sensation and scratches lasted for a few days.


I have no idea why the Rectory chose this moment to bite me back. There is no rhyme or reason to any of it. Feel like it's the Rectory's secret handshake.
