It's A Sign

Anyone who has seen me teach Relief Society knows I am not a centerpiece person. This is not to say that I don't love decorations (I do! Have you seen my house around a holiday?) or that I don't like other people's lesson centerpieces, but when it comes down to it, I think it's a complete waste of time. Why would I want to spend hours stressing over an artsy arrangement to complement my assigned topic when I could spend those hours stressing over something more important, like, I don't know, the lesson itself? And why would I want to spend even more hours wrapping individual cookies in cute little baggies when I could just pass around a plate and let everyone help themselves?

If you are one of those people who enjoys making centerpieces for your RS Lessons, or bagging your cookies, more power to you. I am in awe. But it's just not my thing.

Along the same vein, I'm not much of a cheesy sign person. I have a few nice little sayings displayed in my house, and I've seen a few in other homes that I like, but I am not going to paint "Home Is Where The Heart Is" above my front door. Because then I would have to gag every time I left the house.

So I had to laugh my head off when I saw these alternative signs on the Six LDS Writers blog, created by the hilarious LDS author, Robison Wells:

I'm putting in my order now. Anyone else want one?

I laughed out loud about the one about the lies. But I have to say... you bake cookies for your lesson?

Bonnie said...

Um, no. The most I've ever done is pass out a bag of Dove chocolates, and that was for Mother's Day.

I'll take a few of those. #2 and #7 made me laugh.

Sara said...

Those are hysterical.

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't individually bag cookies for a lesson or do elaborate centerpieces!

I love the one about the lie. Ha! I love you Bonnie!

Bonnie, you are a woman after my own heart!

And Rob's signs just totally crack me up.
