    I think back on all the missed opportunities I could had not being a Jehovah's Witness. Which were many of course.

    However, now I'm thinking about all the fun I could of had if I had been a PIMO and had fun in that position. The possibilities are endless.

    Some of the things I wished I had none while still being in but out mentally.

    1. At Bethel when I working there in the Laundry I thought how cool it would have been to steal one pair of Knorr's boxer shorts with his key number of "33" stamped on the front of them. I would have put them in a glass box and put them up on my living room wall, definitely conversation starter.

    2. Of course I would have partook of the bread and wine at memorial.

    3. Give a half hour prayer at the end of the Watchtower study....and talk about crazy and odd things.

    4. Tell my kids it was all bull shit and just go along with it until they moved out of the house and then go college.

    5. Become an elder and forgive everyone no matter what their sins were. Tell them to say just say "three hail Mary's and five our father's"

    You get the idea. What do you wished you could have done to make them wonder if you were nuts?

    As George Carlin said. "Make them think about it!"

    I think the reason the local yokel elduhs leave me alone after 11 years out is ....

    ....because they think I am nuts.

    I am pretty certain they are relieved I am no longer an elduh and a pain in their collective fat asses.

    I put the word out a few years ago to the then PO to leave me be ...shit don't stink unless you stir it.

    I think he spread the word.. no one stops by here anymore....LOL. He is about 88 now, not PO anymore. Good ol boy.

    "Fun I could have had ??"

    I could have given answers during the Sunday Watchtower study that pointed out certain ironies in the JW doctrine yet seemed to be in full agreement.

    For example, during a study on the revised meaning of the word "generation" I could've raised my hand and said:

    "Since the mid 1900's Jehovah's Witnesses have been teaching people throughout the world that those who were of an age of understanding during the year 1914, would not die before Armageddon arrived. Those who rejected our message or didn't accept this teaching were considered to be Apostate or at the very least as un-sheeplike.

    Since 1914 is now over 100 years in the past and most everyone alive at that time has passed away, anyone who couldn't accept the reasoning behind the old understanding of the word "generation" will be happy to know that the Governing Body has lovingly provided a clearer understanding of this word. They've made it clear to us that a great grandfather and a great grandchild are of the same generation so long as they were alive during the same overlapping years. We've learned that when Jesus said at Matthew 24:34 "this generation will by no means pass away until all these things are fulfilled" technically he should have said "This generation and anyone whose life later overlaps the lives of this generation's, will not pass away until all these things are fulfilled."

    I'm glad I woke up before I was 'too old' to have fun. But I did lose a lot of opportunity.
