Sitting in church this past Sunday (for just Sacrament meeting..not feeling THAT great yet) I cringed as I heard the first two announcements for singles activities. Singles over 31 to 101 that is. I always expect someone in my family to poke me or give me a significant look. A look that says, "You really should go to these."
And I know I probably should to support the program and blah blah blah. I have always resisted going to any of the singles firesides. When I say firesides I mean meetings on Sunday. There is no fire involved its just something it is called in church culture. I didn't even like to go to singles firesides when I was younger. Especially with topics like, "Being happy and being single" or "Finding your perfect mate." The topics weren't quite that bad and I thought I had heard everything as a topic for a singles fireside.
The topic for this week's fireside?
Get ready its very exciting....
Seriously? Sleep disorders? For a singles fireside?
To each his own I suppose but my attitude about firesides definitely has taken a sharp turn for the worse.
