Eucharistia

Eucharistia (eu-cha-ris’-ti-a): Giving thanks for a benefit received, sometimes adding one’s inability to repay.

X: Thank you so much for the new lawnmower! There’s no way I can repay you.

Y: If that’s the case I’m taking it back. I was expecting you to mow my lawn once a week without fail.

X: Then, take your damn lawnmower back! What do I look like, your indentured servant?

X: I can’t believed how helpful you’ve been. I didn’t have a chance, and literally one snap of your fingers and I’m promoted to VP!

I am eternally grateful for your kindness. I can never repay you.

D: I’m glad you mentioned “eternally” as the duration of your gratitude. That’s just what I had in mind.

When you asked for it, you knew my famous ‘finger snap’ is not gratis. You knew repayment was part of the deal–you were just too stupid to ask exactly how the repayment was to be made–what form it would take.

X: Oh my God! I never believed you could actually do it.

D: Well, sorry about this being so soon after your promotion, but it’s time . . .

Thank you for sending me an angel. He has helped me with my substance abuse problem.  Also, on hot nights he cools me off by flapping his wings over my bed and lets me use his halo as a reading light.

Since I’m only a mortal, there’s no way I can ever repay you, but I just want you to know how grateful I am: Hallelujah!

Thanks for the kidney Uncle Eddy! I owe you my life! There’s no way I’ll ever be able to do the same for you, but if you need a lung or some other body part or organ & I’ve got one to spare, I’m here for you!

Thank you for saving my dog. There is nothing I can ever do that will be enough to repay your courage and kindness.

I really appreciate what you did for me. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to repay you!

Wow! I never expected a new Ducati for my birthday. Thank you so much–there’s no way I’ll ever be able to match this one on your birthday! You are the best! Want to go for a ride?
