Los Angeles, California, USA — 65-year old baba Masha (St Mary of Egypt) Harrison today knocked herself out when making the sign of the cross. Used to the military-crisp and somewhat exaggerated crossing method sometimes seen in other babushki, Mrs Harrison forgot she was wearing a cast on her right hand, and in making her usual swift, powerful move toward her forehead for the beginning of the ancient symbol, thwacked herself hard enough to cause her to temporarily lose consciousness. Fortunately she was caught in her fall by her husband, Ralph (St Raphael the Archangel) Harrison. Mrs. Harrison quickly regained consciousness, and contined the service with slightly more subdued gestures.
Just some fun!
