Leo's Newest Trick



Ok, so I LOVE a good giveaway and I found a GREAT one today at sherbet blossom! For a few weeks I've been following a blog here. I've always enjoyed writing and journaling but often find it difficult to know WHAT I want to write about. This site has been AWESOME because the prompts make it easy to come up with new ideas and write, write, write. SO, if you'd like to enter a cool give away visit Hannah at sherbet blossom (you can click the link or the button on my page) and if you want some inspiration head on over to Marta's site. Enjoy and good luck!!

p.s. Easter post to come soon!

Stupid Human Tricks

Ok, so here's the set up: A couple of weeks ago at youth group Matt told the youth that it was impossible to swallow a teaspoon of cinnamon. I'm not exactly sure how things escalated from there but I DO remember hearing the words "I bet you can't do it" being said (and if I'm not mistaken they came from the lips of my husband) and from there it was on. Now, I'm a rule follower (for the most part) so if someone tells me that I should do something or there are specific instructions, signs, directions (ie-arrows in a parking lot) then I'm fine, you won't hear any rebuttal from me. HOWEVER, when I hear the words "You CAN'T do that", as in, "You don't have the ability", well then, sister let me tell you it is Gonkey Kong (according to Brooke Simmons). So, once the words were out the challenge had been issued and I accepted. SO, after our youth lesson, including wonderful words of spiritual wisdom from said challenge issuing husband, I began the search for the cinnamon. We (Matt, 10 youth, and I) headed to the front yard where I was CONVINCED that I would be proving Matt VERY WRONG. I mean after all it was just tiny teaspoon of cinnamon...right?

The following is a visual sample of how it all went down...

I guess I don't need to explain to you that I lost the challenge and that it is, in fact, not possible to swallow cinnamon. Why? Well, because when cinnamon gets wet it clumps (a fact that I as one who does a lot of cooking/baking had somehow forgotten). I clearly remember praying that the Lord would not let me choke to death at youth group in front of the pastor's house.

So...Matt was right.

Maybe I should just stick to following the arrows in the parking lot...

(Just a quick disclaimer: this really isn't a very safe trick. Once the cinnamon is in your mouth you really do start to choke. So put this one under the "do not try this at home (OR youth camp)" file.) : )
