When Is Midnight Mass?

Several years ago, Tomie's friends from Australia were visiting for Christmas. They wanted to go to Christmas Eve midnight mass at the local Catholic church. Tomie was "performing" - that is, reading one of his stories as a favor to the priest.

Jenny, from Australia, asked, "When is midnight mass?" Tomie said, "Call the church."

The answer was that midnight mass began at 10:00 p.m.

When she told Tomie, she also added, "How twisted."
