Listen Up

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

My sons, as they walked out the door hundreds of times, have heard their mom say "bye, love you" and me say "don't do nuthin' dumb."

You might as well tell me not to breath.





As a teenager, I had a boss who, anytime found himself needing to say something nice, looked you in the eye and said "Don't be stupid all your life". I'm pretty sure he thought it was a compliment.

Stupid young men - if they survive - have awesome stories to tell when they're old men.

Mrs FredS, ever more graceful than I, would say "make wise choices" as our girls left home for an evening out.

I will quote the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu: "The farther I go, the less I know." So, if that's true, and I think it is, I am getting progressively more stupid every day.
