Because I'm 12

So last night I was at a denominational meeting (Presbytery for you Presbyterians out there) and the agenda was full. Early on as part of a presentation a member of Presbytery threw balls out into the crowd attempting to make a point about something. I might have remembered if she had not ended her moment by saying, "Okay, those that have them need to grab their balls and stop throwing them around."




I think the world would be a better place, don't you?

Well maybe not the grabbing part.

Well, Ladyburg was sitting next to me as well as another friend and we all snickered but kept it in until the next guy got up and said, "My committee doesn't have any balls for you to play with."

I then laughed out loud.
I think Ladyburg might have too.

I like the way you think.

If you're twelve, I'm eleven.

That's the problem (or the good thing!) about demos like this at presbytery. Love it.

esperanza said...

Amen, sister.

The secret to a good Presbytery meeting is all in who you sit next to.

will smama said...

esperenza, that my friend, will preach.

We missed listing straight dearly, but clearly would have been asked to leave at some point if she had been in the row with us.

LadyBurg said...

Uh, yes, I laughed out loud. How could you not!? Half the meeting heard us and may have been dismayed by our bad behavior but seriously...... one needs to laugh at Presbytery.

Esperanza, you are correct!

LadyBurg said...

oh, and you stole my blog post. I was so going to blog that but thought I better check your's first. hee hee

will smama said...

You can cross-post. It was worthy of two mentions that's for sure. One for each ball.

Christine said...

The world AND presbytery meetings, God help us.

PPB said...

That presbytery got a lot more fun when I left.

Hmm....
I hope that's a coincidence.
