    I'm new to this, I've spent the past 2 years trying to pull my head out of the BS. I've refused to live a double life - I have nothing to hide - apparently others think otherwise! So I'm ignored - no problem, makes the BS easier to ignore. My kid needs sports to learn team spirit and how to participate in a group for the group - irrony is, isn't that what we should be doing anyway. In 10 years I've never done things the cookie cutter way. I'm not a rebel. What's up with these stepford wives!

    I'm going to give you a "g" for "introductions that arouse interest", but I want you to work on timing. Your post used up only 38 seconds of your alotted 5 minutes. When the givin theme is "things to bitch about in JWland", the Faithful and Discreet Slave have prepared a bountious feast of well-oiled dishes for bitching fodder. Perhaps you should review your TMS book on study habits.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.

    WELCOME! So glad you're here.

    Howdy, howdy, lookin. Glad to hear you can see the light of day now.


    There two redheads and one blonde attempting to fix a roof. While they are on the roof, a herd of cattle run by and knocked down the ladder and leave a big pile of manure behind.

    The 2 redheads decide that they should make the blonde go first, to check how deep the manure is so they can jump down. So the blonde jumps down and yells, "It's only ankle deep."

    So the two redheads jump down and scream, "What are you talking about?! It's up to our heads!"

    And the blonde replies, "Well, I jumped in head first."

    Welcome, lookin!

    I agree with you. Kids should participate in at least one team activity such as sports. You need that in order to fill out the college application these days. And don't forget the music lesson as well.

    looking forward to getting to know you better.

    Six, I must protest! I don't think a newbie deserves a "G!" !!!!

    At one point it was determined in our congregation (by nitwits who couldn't string two words together if they had a tie line) that no one should receive a G when they were first working on a point.

    You had to

    1. Work on it

    2. Improve

    3. Good progress

    That was the natural order determined by some.

    Once my older sister gave a talk in which her counsel point was "Convincing Argument." She did an outstanding job but made it a very realistic talk, in which the householder was not 'convinced' in 5 minutes, but was willing to have her make a return visit. (The whole premise of the TMS is to make you better in the ministry, right?

    Anyhow, an elder by the name of Bill Withers gave her a "W'. His reasoning? Her argument was convincing, because the householder didn't concede defeat!!!

    Can you imagine?

    Anyhow, lookin, welcome to the home of the EX-Stepford wives. We don't wear flowery skirts and some of us have potty mouths. (Well, mostly me.)
