Into the Lion's Den

Guess where I get to go? To the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Lucky me!

My cousin is having a reception there this evening, so my siblings and I are going to head up there together. And mom too. So 5 out of 5 of us will be the black sheep (well 2 are more of a gray tone...) heading straight into the fire.

I haven't stepped foot in a Mormon church in 5 months. One time I had to turn my car around, so I pulled into a church parking lot. That's not really neat, but I acknowledged it in my mind. I've talked with a few Mormon friends about my exit, but they were really supportive, so I didn't feel uncomfortable. Basically what I'm saying is that I haven't been out of my element EVER in regards to my leaving the church. So I wonder what will happen tonight.

This is why I'm glad I'll have my bros and sis with me. There is sure to be loud laughter, and that always calms me down.

What should I wear??? I don't even own a dress anymore. Definately I'll have to wear that awesome bra I got a few weeks ago. That will make me calm too, feeling hot and sexy in a setting where people are supposed to be modest and boring. We'll see...

I'll return and report.

Just eat the food and have a good time. I (being kind of a tacky person) always just go to receptions in jeans. I don't have any trouble rationalizing it since I've never been to a really nice, classy Mormon reception. Have fun!

You crack me up, LA.
