Man, that's the best laugh I've had in weeks
Hey bloggers, this is the one, the only...
Allen Joseph Duty.
That's right - it's Friday night, 8:53 p.m., which means it's time for bed. But not on this fateful night, oh no.
Let me tell you how this came to pass...
I was helping Kendra with the "nighttime routine" (which includes getting Taylor a bath, some "food," and into the crib) where, as those of you who know me well may have guessed, is 100% methodical and predictable every night.
However, on this fateful night, I journeyed past the "study" (which is really the guest room with the computer in it that will one day be another bedroom and force us to move the computer somewhere else, which in turn will drive me nuts) and it was as if the computer called out to me.
It said, "Read the blogs, Allen."
As though possessed, I went straight over and began to read. As I read, I laughed.
And laughed and laughed and laughed.
I don't know what it is, but it's like everyone at Living Hope Baptist Church is a comedian behind the keyboard. Why is that? Is it because the people who aren't lightning-fast with words and wit have time to come up with the exact right way to turn a phrase? I have no idea, but everyone is stinking hilarious.
For example, I went to the Hendrick blog. Now, I've known for quite some time that Heather is great with the written word and thus, it doesn't surprise me when I read funny stuff on their blog. But I was reading the stuff about the morning routine and about the puking episodes and anything that has something to do with Aaron and I thought I was going to pee in my pants.
We've got some really funny people at this church, and I guess what's funny is that everyone in our circle is just so brutally honest about life.
The point of this whole post was to say this: I'm sure glad that we don't have to wear masks that are designed to say, "Check me out; I've got it all together."
