Wacky Wednesday

wacky wednesday

On the first Wednesday of each month, my friend and fellow blogger (and soon-to-be World Racer!), Katie Axelson, posts “a collection of real things heard in real conversations during the [previous] month” over on her blog. And this month, for the first time ever, she’s invited us to join her in a link-up, and I’m excited to be joining in the fun!

So here are a few quotable moments I’ve heard in real conversations (or read in real books) during the month of July…

Dad: All your life, you will have moments where you don’t just look dumb, you actually will be dumb. And it’s okay. Really.

Blair: We all need reminders of the truth of the Gospel all the time.

B: Wow. Is that bug on the wall a moth or a bee? … It’s a MEE!

Me: Well, it’s blue-skyish right now, so maybe it won’t storm at all tonight.
Dad: That’s a positive outlook. That’s very Pollyanna of you.
Me: Oh.
Dad: No, that’s great!

1 Peter 4:10-11: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace … in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Co-worker (completely unintentionally, mind you): I’m so glad my initials aren’t S.A.D. That’s kind of sad.

While driving down the road…
B (excitedly): Oh my gosh!! It’s a white jackass!! It’s SOO cute! Did you see it in that yard?!?

MeMaw: We’re so good we have to borrow trouble.

Paul Angone: “God in His infinite mercy saves us from Syllabus Syndrome … Thank God He didn’t show me the syllabus for my 20s … I would’ve dropped this whole decade like a calculus class and never returned.”

(Side note: This is from Paul Angone’s new book 101 Secrets for Your Twenties. If you’re a twenty-something, I highly recommend you read this book. As in, go get it. Quickly. It’s hilarious and truth-filled and freeing and well worth your time.)

Mr. John (to a roomful of preschoolers): Wisdom means knowing what God thinks and then doing things His way.

Have you overheard anything fun, ridiculous, mind-blowing, or just plain good recently? Share away in the comments or link-up with us!
