Day 5 - We're on the radar. How horrible.

We like to not be on the radar, it a 72 hour time period our way of life has changed.

We'll talk about things we shouldn't have done.

First, we shouldn't have agreed to substitute.

Second, Jake shouldn't have picked up his old cell phone.

Third, Jake shouldn't have picked up his old cell phone before 8 a.m.

Fourth, we should have not agreed to substitute for the second week in a row.

We have talks on the 12th. And we're the Valiant 9 teachers. . . all in that 3 day period.

Really though, I'm happy to be the teacher. However, I abhor speaking in church. I talk to fast no matter how prepared I am, I shake the whole time. I make stupid jokes. I stumble over my words. . . it's quite hilarious I imagine.

The only good thing about this is that the "youth" speaker is a leaving missionary, so I am going to call him and tell him to take up as much time as he can. Then I'll just say the short intro about us and tell the listeners that Jake has such a beautiful message and I want him to have as much time as possible, so I'll just bear a simple, short short short testimony.

Hopefully that missionary boy takes me seriously though.

Hah! It it my stricktest rule to never answer the phone when I don't know who is calling. Because usually they ask us to sub.

Fistly, love your posts!
Secondly, Valiant 9 is a fabulous class to teach, I think you'll love it.
Thirdly, I am a fast talker when I am speaking too, but here's the good news, I've been in that ward and they are incredibly fast listeners, so you're actually perfect for them :)
