Wednesday Thoughts

As I mentioned on here before, the girls in my church ages 12-16 go to camp for a week every summer and this year I've been asked to be in charge of helping plan it. But before we go to camp, we have to have a fundraiser to help pay for it. Over the weekend, I had a meeting with some of the other leaders to talk about the fundraiser. We talked about asking my uncle, who does Elvis impersonating, to be our auctioneer. After the meeting, I asked him if he would do it and he said he would. He even changed the words of a popular Elvis song to be about the fundraiser. It's going to be great. 

Last night I handed out the tickets to the girls so they can sell them and pass them out. On the tickets, I wrote, "Featuring a celebrity auctioneer!" The girls hadn't heard about this yet. When one of the leaders saw the tickets, she said excitedly, "he said yes!?!?!" Not knowing what we were talking about, one of the girls said excitedly to me, "you're getting married!?!?!?!?!?!?" I said, "no! I wouldn't propose!!" Another girl said, "Some girls do!!"

First of all, do they? I mean, besides Monica Geller. Just curious.

Secondly, I laughed so hard. 

Thirdly, it made me kind of sad to say no. 

Happy Wednesday.

You'll say yes some day soon! Meanwhile, cakes and Elvis? Viva Las Vegas!

HA! If you DO propose, it should be to an Elvis song. "I'll have a bluuuuuuuue...eternity.....without you....."

Someone I know asked. This was after she said she needed more time when he first asked her though. But I'm sure it's not uncommon. Elvis sounds fun!
