Day’s Verse:
Although a sinner does evil a hundred times and may lengthen his life,
still I know that it will be well for those who fear God, who fear Him openly.

Ecclesiastes 8:12Aren't We Classy

I have acted normal all day. Normal clothes, normal walk, normal talk, normal backpack and accoutrements. But when I went to get my laundry – a short walk, just around the back of the building – I unaccountably draped the laundry bag over my head. Ian Turban (4)Ian and I have a tendency to do strange activities like that around each other. Let’s be honest here: how many strange things have you done when you knew your companion’s opinions of you wouldn’t change as a result? Why be normal with your spouse, when he’ll love you just as much when you’re silly? So I draped the laundry bag over my head, and left it there as I walked around the house. A gardener raked leaves at the house next door, but he never looked up to see my strange hat.

Then, just when I thought I had escaped unscathed, who should appear but another resident of our house! And what should she want but to change over her laundry at exactly the same time I did my laundry? Here I’ve never yet had another resident need to do laundry at the same time as me. I’ve seen other peoples’ laundry, sure; but no owners of those soggy clothes. Then, the one time I do something a little strange, what should happen but somebody else would choose to do her laundry at that exact moment! That’ll teach me to wear laundry bags on my head.

  1. Katie my dear! I will be seeing you in class tomorrow regardless, but I want to invite you and Ian to a Halloween party I’m attempting to organize on Saturday night. The plan is to start around 8ish and there will be games and food and costumes! We’d love to have you!
