After a two week hiatus, we are back to our regularly scheduled schedule.
Stephanie and Cory (et al) came to our ward to hear Nathan's homecoming talk. Nathan did a fine job - the meeting even ended a couple of minutes early. I told him that I appreciate it when speakers quit when they are done - as opposed to rambling on. It is definitely a sign of maturity when someone is given just a few days to come up with a 20 minute talk, and they don't complain. In that respect I'm not very mature. I still like to "haggle" over just exactly how long the member of the bishopric wants me to speak.
me: "When you say seven to ten minutes, do you mean closer to seven?"
them: "(relieved that I didn't just say no) However long the Spirit prompts you to talk"
me: "We'll be out early"
