Tonight in my comment box I said, "That's just so wrong!" about the 20 year old girl who had never been to the post office.
And the more I think about it, the louder I want to say it. In a judgmental tone of voice.
THAT'S JUST SO WRONG!
But what's even more wrong is that she didn't know where to write the address or put the stamp.
COME ON! Is this what email and texting has done to our young people? Never going to the post office is bad enough, but have you really lived if you've never written a letter with your own two hands? Or licked a stamp with your tongue?
You know what else is just so wrong? Exercising and reading The Ensign at the same time. There should be a warning label on the back of the magazine that says WARNING: Reading religious material while working out may be hazardous to your health.
I am living proof that it may be hazardous to your health because the next time I see someone at the rec center skimming messages from the prophet while they're frantically pedaling the elliptical, I'm going to poke their eyes out.
I don't think it's right for people to do crossword puzzles or study chemistry while they're working out either, but there's something almost, for lack of a better word, pernicious about trying to progress physically and spiritually at the same time.
Might as well wear a t-shirt that says Don't hate me because I'm faster AND more spiritual than YOU!
That's just. soooooo. wrong!
The only thing you should be doing while you're running in place or spinning your wheels is sweating and looking at your watch and cursing under your breath.

Otherwise you're not living in the now.
LIVE in the NOW, peoples! Live! in! the! now!
