Piter used to love to regale us with the story of Mrs. Chorian, who approached him after church one day (on the front steps of the United Armenian Brethren Evangelical Church of Watertown, Massachusetts, the church that was begun by Marash Girl's great uncle Vartan).
"Piterrrr . . . Are you happy in the Lord?"
"Yes, Mrs. Chorian, I'm happy in the Lord."
"But, Piterr . . . Are you happy in the Lord ALL THE TIME?"
"But Mrs. Chorian! People who are happy all the time are in the crazy house!"
