K: "No! His White Grandpa!"
Me: "Kathryn, you're so racist."
B: "My friend had an Asian grandpa, he said I was pretty"
K: "well if all else fails you can marry your friends Asian grandpa"
Me:"____ (the RS president from my family ward) said my hair looked sexy today!"
K: "well if all else fails you can marry her."
H: "People said I was cute when I was young..."
Today was my first Sunday in the singles ward here. It is not uncommon to have off the wall comments, the kind where everyone just smiles and nods at the person. Well today in RS I thought someone was making one of those comments. We were talking about the Good Samaritan and charity, and this girl commented, "When I am having a hard time with someone I imagine them eating a sandwich."
Which seems like a weird thing to say--but when you think about it it's pretty genius. I mean, think about someone you are frustrated with or something and think of them eating a sandwich. There is just something so humanizing about eating.
So I will leave you with a picture of our fearless leader eating a sandwich--doesn't he seem so approachable with his mouth full?

And today I saw that it was tweeted by Jen McCabe of Honey Kennedy. I love her blog so that was really exciting.
Also, there is a legend that Earnest Hemingway was once challenged in a bar to write a memoir in six words. His six words read: 'For sale: baby shoes, never worn.' So, this Valentine's day we had a challenge at 826 to write a 6 word memoir about something you love. Then I took all the memoirs, typed them up and we made the most adorable book. It is 2x2", and everyone at the office is obsessing over them today.
I challenge you, my readers to come up with your own six word memoir about love, and leave it as a comment! My memoir that is included in the book is written about my love of people watching and was inspired by someone I saw on the bus that day.

One of the hardest parts was picking which pictures to leave out!
