It’s travel day. Home to the kiddos. My wife is at a children’s ministry training in Florida and won’t be home until Saturday. We had three days of overlapping absence and her parents split grandkids duty, with grandmom taking the first two days (everything went fine) and grandpa taking the last day (picked them up an hour late from school, returned home and promptly broke the glass in our front door). Still, we’re grateful to them.
Oh right, proof-texting. It’s not really about that. I just thought I’d share my out-of-context quote sheet from the week. If you’ve never played the quote sheet game with your group, you should try it the next time you’re on the road or away for a weekend. The idea is to isolate amusing/inappropriate phrases without their context. Generally speaking, they’re funnier without their context anyway, and down the road can be a fun remembrance exercise for the event. My enthusiasm for keeping track of quotes and the fact that I was the only one who was playing keep this list pretty short, but here are some of my overhearings from this week at PSYM:
“I know, that’s what I thought. Spastic intestine.”
“So it’s like a giant spiritual prophylactic.”
“OK, so I’ll get the cow and um… try to milk it.”
“Now I totally understand how Pat Robertson thinks.”
“You can use this however you want as long as you credit ‘Buzz McNutts.’”
“No, no; we don’t do animal captures.”
“Shit! Where is my Wesley Study Bible?”
So there ya go. Thanks to all of you that we made connections with this week! Except for Todd, of course.
