This week's shoeless Bible study

I was at the Bible study at the pastor's house tonight.

There are two meetings at the pastor's house, the prayer meeting and the Bible study. The Bible study is held in a carpeted room and nearly everybody takes their shoes off. The prayer meeting, however, is held in a room with wooden floors. A few people who attend both meetings remove their shoes for the Bible study, but not the prayer meeting.

A lot of people attend the Bible study and the carpeted room gets very crowded. A lady was sat in a seat that was right next to the fireplace so that her feet were on its marble base (not sure what the proper word is for the base of a fireplace). To avoid getting cold feet she carried her shoes into the room and wore them while she was sat down. But she took them off when she got up again.

Being the obsessive compulsive that I am, I got distracted from the Bible study by wondering whether a lady sat near to me was in slippers or wearing shoes. I am terrible.
