A friend from the UK sent me this photo.
First thing I did was look up the word “Creche.” My fear was it was similar to “quiche,” and in England they were turning husbands into breaded lunch foods. Pretty reasonable fear if you think about it. Turns out, I was wrong.
It means “day care.”
So, at this church, which must be near some stores, wives can drop off their husbands while they go shopping in peace.
I wonder if they do it like we do Sunday School at my church. When I drop my kids off, I get a bracelet with a number on it. If my kids misbehave, I win the bad parent lottery and a number is displayed during church on the “screen o’ shame” indicating that I must retrieve them post-haste. Is that what they are doing in the UK? Hard to say.
But that’s not what I want to talk about today. I’d much rather discuss these two questions with you:
1. Ladies, if you could drop your husband off at church while you shopped, would you?
2. Everybody, what would that drop-off spot in America be like? I’m thinking some sort of Messiah-based man cave. Part Philippians, part Fantasy Football. How would you design the American version of the “Husband Creche?”
