Ah... this Tuesday, Tobit 2:9-14 will be read at weekday Mass. I read at my parish every Tuesday morning. I "avoided" this one two years ago by accidentally reading the First Reading for the saint's day which coincided. (I was charitably corrected by my pastor.)
I will pray to keep a straight face while speaking these words: "I did not know there were birds perched on the wall above me, till their warm droppings settled in my eyes, causing cataracts."
