This made me laugh out loud, because it's exactly what I was thinking last Sunday. I found your blog quite by accident, and somehow spent a good portion of my evening reading every single post you have here... It's been really interesting from my perspective--I'm a home-grown Happy Valley Mormon headed to BYU this fall. However, I love the points you make--traditions that have somehow become set in stone, poking fun at ward choirs, mocking speakers' lack of semantic understanding, etc.--and the irreverent and downright funny way in which you make them. You've given me quite a bit of food for thought, and so I thank you for brightening my day.
Glad it makes you happy.We’re a straitlaced people, all in all—as i see it, we have to have a few holes poked in our (cultural) selves, or we’re gonna explode.
We have so few older kids that we can't really play that game. In fact, there are only 4 11-year-olds and a couple 10 year olds. Of the 11 year-olds the boy is short and likely always will be (short parents). One girl is average height and likely won't grow a whole lot more either (REALLY short parents). Another girl is taller than the others, but has not had a growth spurt. In fact she's barely grown in the last many months (tall dad and she seems to have inherited his genes - she's just always been taller than average).And then there's Ani. She DID hit a growth spurt recently... and she's just shy of 50th percentile for her age now! She's shorter than the other girls her age still, though.
