Know your Anatomy

Several years ago a friend told me the following story. He said his sister who lives out of state called him up one Sunday afternoon to tell him about an experience she had at her church. She said they were having a special service where their church members were able to come out of the congregation and speak from the pulpit to share a thought, their testimony, or express gratitude. One woman got up and mentioned how grateful she was that her husband was feeling better. She said he had injured his scrotum several weeks before and as a result, he had to take it easy and could not do all the things he used to be able to do. She said it was hard on their family but she was grateful he was finally getting better. She went on with some other thoughts and finished while the entire congregation silently sat wide eyed and shocked. She then sat down and her husband immediately ran up to the pulpit and made a one word correction into the microphone. STERNUM!

I will forgo the usual picture for this post. I think my blog may have lost it's PG rating for a day, but that story is too funny to not share.

Hilarious! I love those kind of testimony meetings.

I was once present for one where a guy did his own version of a Milly Vanilly classic and sang "I know this church is true-oooh oooh oooh, I love you!" It was so great!

Funny, but it could have easily been me. Thank goodness for google define, at least I could blog with more peace.

I've heard this story before. My friend said her mom's cousin was in the congregation. I'm praying that it's true and not mormon urban legend.

But what is true is that when I was a teenager a man who had moved out of our ward years before came back to visit and got up during testimony meeting and sang "Memories" - the entire song, all the verses, the chorus and the bridge - then sat down.

My girlfriend announced that her dad had just had a hysterectomy and when we tried to correct her she insisted that that's what it was. Turns out it was a hernia operation.
