A Very Painful Morning...

Once upon a time, I built a castle. Actually, it was about 3 weeks ago. You might remember reading about how we decided to do some stage design for our new Middle School weekend service teaching series. Well, along with the castle that we built, I also made a suit of armor. Now, let me start by saying that I did think about renting a costume. But, I thought that it would be funnier if I built it and made it look homemade. Mission accomplished. So, here's the picture that I promised you a couple of weeks ago. 30 gallon steel trash can + pool noodles + vent piping + trash can lid + bucket + Captain Jack's sword = suit of armor. You can't see it. But, underneath the trash can I'm wearing a WWE tag team championship belt to represent the belt of truth. You have to admit; I look tough. By the way, in case you were wondering: yes. It was extremely hot inside of that thing.

We also played a game called "Pinhead". We give the participants 2 minutes to put as many clothespins as they can on their face. We played this a year ago and I got 32. This year, I bested my record by one. That's right: 33 in 2 minutes! A 7th grade boy in first service got 36. The world record is 120, although no time limit was assigned. Let me go ahead and tell you that this hurt a great deal. Especially on the eyebrows. But the worst is when you have them on your face and someone makes you laugh...
