Drama in Sacrament Meeting

Here's what happened yesterday:

Guy at the podium: We'd like to extend a release to Danny Grigg as second counselor in the Primary presidency.

Mass hysteria ensues. Children begin to wail. Parents gape at each other in disbelief. Primary teachers contemplate resigning in protest. Walls shake. Lights flash.

Congregation offers a vote of thanks.


Guy at the podium: The following individual has been called to a new position: Danny Grigg, as first counselor in the primary presidency.

Congregation: Oh.

I think most of this was in my head.

Geesh. Poor guy doesn't even know your name is DONNY, not Danny.

Hahahahaha! You're killing me. The weeping and wailing must certainly have been literal not a figment of your imagination (like the 2 raccoon tails must've been - who'd wear two?? Get real Danny!) And you were right to think twice about talking to the figment of your imagination about his two tails.

BTW, some of the uproar may have been from visitors, not knowing you, wondering why Boise Stake allows men named Danny to be in the Primary presidency. But I'm sure the primary kids wimpering would have drowned that out...

Oh and very impressive that you can get a 12:01 thought on your blog by 12:03...

Wow, pretty sweet promotion...but what is the point of that really? 2nd to 1st? Is the former 1st counselor now the 2nd counselor as well? That would be awkward to be demoted;)

Okay, yeah, I don't really get it. Why did they move you from second to first? You were too good for second? I guess that's probably it. Well congratulations on your promotion. lol

explanation: 1st counselor was made YW president, primary president wanted to replace her with a lady who has 3 kids. because of the kids, the president thought I would be more available to take the president's place at meetings if necessary, so she moved me up to first and put the other lady as second. that's all.
