Well this week went by quick! Today is our p-day and we got to go to the Temple!!! The following is a paragraph from Elder Decker who is in my district and we usually spend p-day with him and his companion.
I'm sitting down at IHOP for lunch looking at the menu and I want a delicious bacon cheeseburger with a side of onion rings. But no! They criticize me for choosing non-breakfast food at a breakfast restaurant. I wasn't going to let that snotty comment get to me, but then Elder Shanklin and Elder Child decide to go all out in a food eating contest of unlimited pancakes! Now I'm sitting here thinking, I like pancakes, but they get tiring after a while. It does come with a side of eggs, bacon, sausage, and hashbrowns, but that's the easy part. The real test was the unlimited pancakes that come out two at a time. So I give in to peer pressure, (and I may have also done it for the girls who were sitting with us), NONETHELESS, I join the competition! So Shank and Child dive into the eggs, sausage, bacon, etc. I however, strategically wait, and I start on the pancakes. My idea was to eat as many pancakes as I could, and use the delicious side dishes as a catalyst to enhance my performance upon the pancakes... It didn't work as well as I hoped it would. The waitress didn't bring out our pancakes fast enough! So after pancake #4 we're all decently satisfied, I'm already fetching sick of the taste of them already, but I still have a plate full of tasty bacon and sausage. We wait for maybe 15 minutes before she brings out the next batch and we warf them down, me considerably a little slower than Shank and Child. Then she immediately brings forth number #7 and #8. Shank and Child warf them down and are considering making a truce, while I spend a fetching 20 minutes trying to choke down these last two pancakes! I finally do it, Elder Child steals my bacon, so I really don't like him right now. And we called it a truce after a meager number of only 8 pancakes, (it sounds pathetic, I know). But hey, we're all still alive, and I still have some dignity left.
That was a fun paragraph wasn't it haha. Last Saturday we had this amazing barbecue at Smokin Bones, and it was sooooo good. On Saturday we went on exchanges and so I was with Elder Franco who is Elder Deckers companion. Elder Franco is from Baltimore and is a Ravens fan so we are pretty much best friends. We were both salty when the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Believe it or not I resisted the temptation to watch the game. #deflatriotshaterlivesmatter
