A couple Sundays ago I witnessed something at church that would be a totally HILL-AIR-E-US!! post. The bad news is that a few people in my ward read my blog- and probably a few more stalk it- and while I don't believe the story would injure anyone, it would be in bad form to pass on the little anecdote. And, truthfully, it is killing me to not share...
Just trust me- you would love the story. And so, the dilemma- just how much can you share on a non-private blog?
Seriously, there are moments in life that really would make for some great entertainment. But once shared on the blog, the reader is left to interpret how they may. And the meanings of some stories might get lost in the translation. And I am one who would never want anyone to misconstrue my meaning. Therefore, much of my daily experiences are tucked up on the "it's better not to tell that one" shelf. I'm sure you know the shelf of which I speak.
Tell ya what- here's what I'm gonna do: As soon as I move- which I have no plans of doing just yet (for my ward's benefit. I mean, it is not to my ward's benefit that I am not moving. I am saying that we have no plans of moving so that no rumors are started. Therefore, I said that "we have no plans of moving" for the benefit of my ward. Get it? Got it. Good. Really, do you get it?)- I am taking down those stories from off that shelf, dusting them off, changing a few names, and posting those babies! Once we move.
Because we all love a good story.
And if you are wondering if the story I have been referring to is about you?
P.S. Happy Earth Day. Oldest daughter has been reminding me of this one all month. Won't she be surprised when she realizes that there really is no celebration involved in this holiday? I mean, no celebration as in gifts and carrying on. But, I do believe we will celebrate in our own little way- I have spinach and cucumbers to plant. That should do. Really, we are party animals.
P.P.S. I just came across an article entitled "Scientists discover a nearly Earth-sized planet". I believe some planet is a bit jealous and trying to steal Earth's thunder. Couldn't you come out with this on any other day? After all, it is her day. Rude.
