Oh, Life

You know, I think the ability to laugh at one's self is a priceless quality to have. Kind of like my experience at the DMV the other day. I was the ONLY person there! It was completely dead. A lady took my picture and then I stood waiting for 10 minutes while this lady typed away at her computer. I signed a few things then she printed out my temporary paper license. I grabbed it and walked out to the car. When I glanced down at it, I saw myself half WINKING back at me. That's right folks. ONE of my eyes was half closed. I kept asking myself HOW this could happen. Why didn't the lady say anything to me? NO ONE else was there. NO ONE. The lady didn't even ask if I wanted to look at it. You know, maybe it's my own fault for not asking. I don't know. I can't change it now. All I can do is laugh because it looks so ridiculous. I was trying SO hard to look good for it too! Anyways, another fun story. I was at a school today being a lunch supervisor for an elementary school. Kids would raise their hands and I would help them open their cardboard milk containers (remember those? uck!) or tell someone to stop being annoying or help the kid who lost his tooth. This one cute 1st grader raised her hand so I went over to her. She looked at me shyly and said, "I just realized something! You're beautiful!". Wow I felt great about that. Only to 20 minutes later to have another girl raise her hand and shyly tell me, "You look like my grandma!". I still haven't figured out what I should take from that. I only know that it's pretty funny. I can't stop laughing! She was so sweet about it when she said it too. Oh, life.


  1. Those are cute stories. So do you know when you are speaking yet in church. Let me know as soon as you can so I can arrange to come down to it.

  2. Kyrie!!!!!!!!

    Those stories are hilarious! Makes me miss teaching! You are beautiful so don't forget it. And remember, a lot of these kids have young grandparents too. I mean, if I would have had kids younger, I would have elementary aged kids. At least you don't look like you are a stoned lumberjack in your passport picture :0)

    Love you!
