My friend had received the consecrated bread at communion, and moved to the station administering the wine.

He received the chalice from the woman administering. “The blood of Christ”, she said, handing him the chalice.
“Amen”, he said appropriately.

Then she looked him in the eye and said, “can you finish it please?”

He paused as he was momentarily perplexed, thinking there had been an alteration to the liturgy he was not aware of. “What?” “Can you finish it please?”

Overcoming his bewilderment he replied, “there’s not much more I can add after an ‘Amen’ is there?”
