Matty: Thanks! That sounds like exactly the sort of thing the Elders would have tried their damndest to prevent during OUR Conventions (damn them)...
Unique1: Geez, thank Ghod I didn't grow up in North Carolina (although I haven't a clue what it's like there)...sounds pretty rough. Yeah, it was kinda weird the way that chaperones are considered a bit of an "optional extra" here. That must be a result of the Dutch bloodline LMAO, as I've mentioned before our ancesters left Amsterdam because they were feeling sexually repressed
Ashitaka: Yeah, those stripey shirts are kick-arse. Nothing like a nice striped shirt to get you some attention from a woman. Not the type of attention one would want, but some attention is better than none at all, especially if you're a young Witness boy LMAO...reading that book is like travelling back in time or something, sheesh! It's one of the things I remember most clearly about it. Screw doctrinal issues, I remember the way those poor dudes were toffed up in shirts that made them resemble barber's poles!!!
Sandy: Not an uncommon occurance in any Congregation, let me assure you!
Undercover: Your punishment is to drink at least three sixpacks of beer in one go, or perhaps imbibe at least sixteen shots of good Tequila. After that, with Ghod's blessing, you'll definitely be an Apostate in Good Standing.
Gopher: Hehehehe! If that was right, well...let's just say I wouldn't page through Maxim magazines all that much LOL...
brothers promise to............(i don't know somebody help me) look at playboy mags while playing with themselves... LOL
People who need magazines are lacking in imagination!
I don't think my ex's mum thought I was dependable. I reckon she thought I was the devil come to take her lovely son away!!!!
Sounds good to me! The more devilish the better I say!
Great more repressed memories surging to the forefront after reading this...when I wake screaming in the night I will think of you SYN..lol but I bet you hear that a lot
My reply would be slightly different if I weren't being "family friendly", let me assure you. And they don't scream, they moan
Course everyone knows once you start the actual "dating" process you are pretty much obligated to marry that person..and I don't know about anyone elses hall but we went thru a time where if you were engaged you were considered married (see scriptures on Mary and Joseph for reference please) and there was NO breaking up from that point without some serious consequences!
The horror! All the disadvantages of being married with NONE of the advantages! That sucks the big one!
Thanks again for the cool replies people!!!!!!! Made my day!
