A little background: Since I’m a heathen and don’t go to church anymore, I had forgotten that Southern Baptist churches all seem to have a T.E.L. Sunday School class, which (without trying to be mean here) has members who are in the “twilight” of their lives, so to speak. And no, I don’t mean they’re vampires or consider themselves Team Edward or Team Jacob. Anyhoo, no one seems to know what the T.E.L. stands for; however, my 84-year-old grandmother is a member of the class at her church, and yesterday, I learned they have made up their own slightly morbid version of the name.
Mom: Does the T.E.L. really stand for The End of the Line?
Nanny: I don’t know what it stands for, and I don’t know who came up with The End of the Line. That’s just what I always heard it called.
Regardless, sounds like a Sunday School class I’d rather not join.
