True friends will see you make a bad choice and then smack you repeatedly on the side of the head until you make a good choice. A real friend finds something you'd love and then nags you to the point of annoyance to try this something that they know you will love but you're too stubborn to try.
|That's me- after I broke 200lbs because no one told me about Zofran.|
I could write a sonnet to Zofran. I'm going to compose a thank you note to the manufacturer of Zofran. Those that knew about Zofran and did not share this knowledge- are dead to me. Unfriended, not speaking, out of my life- I'm giving you the black spot not my friend any more.
If you are pregnant and nauseous- in the name that is all good and wonderful in this world- get some Zofran.
Psych. This show is written excursively for me- and I didn't find it until season 5. Psych kicked out Arrested Development for its slot as BEST SHOW IN THE ENTIRE WORLD (sorry Gob- but they put Kristy Swanson and Count Chocula in their vampire episode) I had friends that watched and enjoyed Psych, and did not say anything to me about what a wonderful show this was. Those friends are no friends at all- to have a show that could make me laugh so hard go 5 seasons and not mention it to me? Selfish, evil human beings.
Not too subtly you've probably figured out what this has to do with Mormons. Mormons as a general rule are happy people. Mormons contribute a good deal of what makes them happy to the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know when I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ as taught in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I know when I follow the words of the living prophet- I am happy. That's why the majority of Mormons believe, and that's why they share the gospel with their friends, neighbors and strangers. It's not some trick to brainwash the world, or need for additional tithing funds- but something we like so much, we feel compelled to share it with others. If I'm going to tell every pregnant woman I see to take Zophran, and I'm going to tell every child of the 80's to watch Psych, I should probably also let them know about a religion that has made my day to day living enriched and happy. So next time you see two white shirts and ties at your door- think of them as two guys telling you about a really great local restaurant they love, and not some guys trying to convert you to their faith.
