Stories From My Mission (part five)

One time my companion and I met this kid in the park who was always drawing pictures of people in his sketchbook. He explained to us that he didn’t draw people the way they are, but the tried to draw them the way they “could be”.

Which I think was just an excuse for being a bad artist.

Either that or he actually thinks I “could be” a guy with a lopsided face and an eye on my cheek.

Better an eye on the cheek than a nose on your bum! :)

I like to go to the lost and found at Church and find children's notebooks. I re-draw the images in the book and return the sketch pad. Just to let the urchins know I'm better.

Your blog is a great find. Thanks for the wacky good fun. The magic 8 ball liahona is one of the best things I've seen in a long time.

By the way - isn't that "I draw them as they could be" line from "Saturday's Warrior"? The classic of all Mormon classics.

A lopsided head? I thought you said he was a bad artist.

Did you show that investigator a film strip on your large companions belly? and stomp on his pack of cigarettes? and did he have a really fantastic mullet?

Oh wow! I actually giggled aloud on this one! I think I scared my dog sleeping beside me.

You watch way too much Saturday's Warrior.

I take some paper on my hand, And with a pencil draw a man The dream of what I'd really, really like to be. A man with courage in his brow, Who's licked his doubts and fears somehow, A warrior of great nobility.

your blog is hiLARious!

Reminds me of the time I was at the park and we started having a deep discussion about the Earth and it's over-populating. In sing-song fashion, nonetheless.
