    When I was very young about 12 or 13 my brother [he's mad, not much older] sometimes used to do a cheeky magic trick during the watchtower[God, this was the most boring of them all, I think]. He used to put his hands by his side and miraculously the books on his lap would rise all by themselves [yeah, you guessed it ...morning glory ], well it made me laugh my head off. I bet people could see my shoulders bouncing up and down from the back row. It sure as hell made the watchtower go quicker until I was dragged out and spanked on the legs.

    Sorry, I couldn't contain this story all on my own.

    I had a very rich and fulfilling fantasy life...daydreamed 1/2 my life away...

    I'd get up and walk around. But when iw as younger, it was hard to do that while there with adults. God, it was so boring.

    I played word games using the larger words in the WT or book. I am fairly proficient at Boggle, Scrabble, cryptograms, anagrams, etc., because of it.

    Not all bad then Blondie, all them years of mental abuse are worth something at least.

    Actually, if that's what u did then you should be amazing at it by now. Ever thought of going on a TV show or something ?

    Actually, it has been suggested, be wise, but I'm afraid I will freeze at the wrong moment.

    So do I, if not telly other stuff. Some people make quite a bit [win holidays etc] by hunting down competitions of this nature that are in magazines etc. I saw a program on TV and this women had won loads of stuff cos she was basically very good at it and spent a lot of her time entering for them and doing them.

    Some things I did are as follows:

    1. Write down all the cliche's I heard that evening, such as 'Thinking Christians', etc.

    2. Read the Bible or other magazines such as TIME etc.

    3. Counted how many times the words, Organization, Apostate, Governing Body, Pioneering, etc. were mentioned.

    4. Carried a small 'flask' in my coat pocket and sat at the back so I could dip into it every once in awhile.

    5. Made faces at the kids in the hall and tried to get them to laugh.

    Outaservice (who thanks God daily that he dosen't have to sit through any more meetings!)

    Man you had it worked out a long time ago, outaservice.

    Carried a small 'flask' in my coat pocket and sat at the back so I could dip into it every once in awhile.

    ...probably the best medicine in the world for a KH meeting.
