{ I Almost Wet My Pants}



When people send me emails that they are forwarding from someone else, I typically roll my eyes and delete them without even opening them.


My sister A. forwarded these to me, and then as a backup, read them to me over the phone.


I have to admit... I laughed.


(ps- I don't know if these are real or not - despite the claims that "they actually appeared in church bulletins".  I have serious doubts.  I mean, who exactly are the people gathering up all of these multi-denominational programs for republication in never-ending chain emails?  If they aren't real, I don't care because they're funny and I wish that I'd written them.  If they are real... I'm glad I didn't.)

Love those Church Ladies.. They're Back! Those wonderful Church Bulletins! Thank you church ladies with typewriters. These sentences (with all the BLOOPERS) actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services:

Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.

I love these! I had a friend send me a bunch of these, but different than yours. I like to pretend they're real-- it makes them funnier.

Too funny! I have to admit that I read most of the "forwards" that I get, looking for the really good ones, but I hadn't seen this one yet.
And thanks for stopping by my blog. Re: "...We talk to them about "when they serve" not "if they serve"... but I'm pretty sure that I'll be the mom clutching her 19 year old son's leg and screaming "I'm a dead woman" when I drop him off at the MTC..."
Your perspective really does change after you suffer through the teen years with them. You'll find it not as hard to see them go as your think! (difficult, yes, but not traumatic!)
Have a Happy New Year!
:~D
