Crash Your Car
Okay, this was a little unsettling. But interesting. And if you're in the market for another car, maybe it'd be worth checking out:
What a wonderful time we all had at the InScribe Conference in Canada. I've never met a more lovely group of people or experienced a sweeter group spirit. I DID arrive on Friday night, though later than I planned, and I asked for a few minutes to freshen up before I spoke. This was granted, so I ran to my room to change out of my wrinkled clothes and to brush my teeth. My hostess, Susan, had said that I'd be the last speaker of the day, and so I'd joked that I could simply finish and then send everyone off to bed.
So I put on a dress . . . and then the Lord whispered a suggestion in my ear. Crazy, though. But certainly more comfortable. So I changed out of my dress and put on my pajamas . . . and went down to speak.
They were very kind when I walked in--no one wondered why the main speaker was wearing this very gaudy, fuzzy purple outfit . . . but when I confessed that I was speaking in my pajamas, they all roared.
And after my little talk, I sent everyone--including myself--to bed with a heartfelt "nighty-night." :-)
One girl laughed at breakfast this morning. "I've never heard anyone speak in their pajamas," she said, "but I was expecting the unexpected."
