Apparently people have been talking -- and word on the street is that I'm stinkin' hilarious. (which is a whole 'nother level than just plain old hilarious) Honestly, I've cracked myself up years now..... and am happy to find some kindred (albeit warped) spirits.
This began a few months ago, when a mega church invited me to speak to their womens' group and billed me as a stand-up comedienne -- no pressure there! After agonizing over what to share -- and guzzling cases of Pepto Bismol -- I took the stage and they absolutely LOVED me.
Because I'm modest.
I spoke at a different church this morning, and we had such a great time together. They seemed to especially like this true story of mine: Picture this .....
I was about 13 months' pregnant, with a grocery cart piled high as the Grinch's sleigh. As I was leaving the store, a severe storm had rolled in and rain was coming down by the bucket -- I'm talking monsoon, people! There were about 50 folks standing in the doorway, waiting for the rain to let up. Well, I was in a huge rush, as it was dangerously close to the pick-up time at Alli's preschool. (I couldn't risk getting a dirty look from the teacher again....)
So I kindly asked the rain-watchers to step aside, as the prego was making a run for it. And of course, I use the term "run" loosely. The folks parted like the Red Sea, in disbelief (at my stupidity, I'm sure). Well, I gave it my best pregnant girl dash, knowing I had approx. 100 eyes on my behind. It was about half way down the row that I discovered .......
I had absolutely NO idea where I had parked.
I'm sure I drove here ....
So as I zoomed .... well, lumbered, up and down the aisles, back and forth, back and forth, half giggling and half mortified, it was a painful realization that I really should have thought this operation through much, much better before launching.
I believe I've found my "niche" in sharing my down-to-earth, humorous life experiences, with a sprinkling of Christian teachings and scriptures. God has been so faithful to give me LOTS of material, just with my everyday life! So I'll use that to bring Him glory in turn, and hopefully encourage some hearts along the way. God bless!
