you should blog about that
As I jabber on about who knows what kind of topics in "real life" I often get the comment ... "You should blog about that!"
I got a couple of those moments today.
1. Mike and I this morning:
I was going on and on about how one should counsel people in a godly, Bible-based manner ... you know ... Tripp's method of Love, Know, Speak, Do ...
"You should blog about that!"
2. Hangin' with the guys at Cassey and Jiri's (minus the Cassey):
Adam looking closely at my head.
"It's a leaf, Adam."
"Did you mean to put it there?"
"Nah, I was just being goofy."
"But I like it ... doesn't she look like an elf?" At which point all the other Settlers of Catan and DandD nerdos (I mean that in an affectionate way) turned and affirmed that I was indeed quite elvish looking. "Can't you see her with a bow and arrow ... or pulling out a couple of swords!"
(I miss you, Cassey! come back!)
Later, Jiri brought up Mike's post about men leading. And suggested that (from a married bloke's point of view), leading one's wife is more sacrificial than *pound fist on table* "This is how we will do things!" ...
which led to one of the guys bringing up feminism and another guy responding ... "Well if guys would just do ..."
Jiri: "Christine, what are your thoughts?"
"I think one could go round and round in circles pointing fingers. Men, ought to do what they ought to do. And women ought to do what they ought. Read your own mail. If my husband doesn't show me that he loves me, does that mean I don't have to respect him. If I don't respect him, does that mean that he doesn't have to love me. Peter writes that a woman ought to obey even if her husband does not, with the hope that her obedience with lead the husband to repentance and faith."
to myself: (hmm ... I should blog about that)
3. Late night conversation with Nixter:
Me: And then I pull out a house plant from my bag as I dig around for my mobile (which sounds like an old fashioned telephone ... Brrrrrrrringggg!)
Nixter: Oh, pardon my coat stand ... I love Mary Poppins.
Me: I hate Mary Poppins.
Me: I watched it everyday when I was three years old. Then ten years went by ... I watched it again and was struck by Mary Poppin's arrogance and conceit (Practically Perfect in Every Way ... give me a break!) and THEN ... OH, THEN!!! ... the deceit and lies and mind games that she played on the children! What a happy, joyous time they had together at the park ... and at the end of the day they jumped up and down on the beds in excitement and Mary says ... "It never happened!" Wicked woman! When I was studying art in college, I chose to draw a woman feeding birds as one of my projects. While working on it, people would walk behind me, take a peak, and start singing ... "Feed the birds ... tuppins a bag ... tuppins, tuppins, tuppins a bag" ... CRINGE!!!
Nixter: You should blog about that.
