So my movie night was disturbing. Not disturbing in a disturbing kind of way, but disturbing in a disturbing kind of way. Most people hate being disturbed but I hate/love it. Sometimes I even love/hate it and think it necessary for our eternal progression. I want to tell you about it, but first I have to think of a way to share what disturbs me without disturbing you. I will try.
But not today.
Today I will talk about Stake Conference. We walked. And we were late. So we had to sit on the back side of the stage--behind the black divider curtain. We couldn't see or hear the speakers but we had a great view of the congregation so we amused ourselves by playing little games like guess-who's-feeling-the-spirit and which-couples-look-the-most-alike-when-they're-sleeping. We discovered that music teachers look the most alike when they're sleeping.
Other than that it was a real yawner because there were no apostles here this year. (Just kidding! It was super spiritual, even though there were no apostles there this year--sooo unfair Mary got the prophet and we only got the temple president.)
Remember I told you how my daughter was yakking my ear off about abortion and global warming on our way into town to buy half-priced sumo-wrestler wigs? Well, guess what she was talking about yesterday on our way to a soccer game. Trees. I was really trying to get into it and participate. She was telling me how trees breathe in Carbon Dioxide and breathe out Oxygen, and people breathe in Oxygen and breath out Carbon Dioxide so that's why we need each other so much. Trees need people and people need trees. I said "kinda like the law of attraction," and she gave me the eye roll and the head shake.
Then she was telling me how trees have a harder time breathing in Carbon Dioxide at higher elevations. I said "So trees are more likely to be asthmatic at higher elevations?" She shook her head and rolled both her eyes again. "No" she said, "that's why the trees are smaller at higher elevations, because there are fewer people to breathe with." So I asked her if that's why people in the desert are smaller and more asthmatic?
Then she handed me her Ipod and said, "Isn't this what dummies do in cars?"
I'm entering a contest today! Since Shelle entered mine with a funny chocolate story I thought I would enter hers with a funny chocolate story. If I win, I'll be sewling cupcakes for everyone who votes for me.
Look out below for my entry.
(btw, I'm sleeping right now. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
