Toxic Johns

Nothing really big happening, which is why I haven't blogged after I said I was back. Well, nothing big except I feel like I actually accomplished something as far as housework goes! Almost forgot what that felt like. Would you like to know the motivator? It was the oatmeal creme pie that we gave Tiffany last night and let her crumble all over the table and kitchen floor. About 1/25 made it into her mouth. :) And I didn't even make coffee today! Where on earth did the energy come from? I have no idea, but I'm absolutely not opposed.

Now, here's a question....make that a thought maybe? I went to a meeting last night, and wandered over to Toxic Johns afterwards because their hard shell tacos are 2/1.00 after 8 pm. Yes, I've been craving tacos. No, I'm not pregnant. I pay the guy and wait for a couple of minutes. As I wait, I can't help but want to invite this guy to the Good Friday service at church. Why? No idea. Now, if I say "hey, what are you doing Friday night?", it sounds like I'm going to ask him out on a date or something. So I look for a pamphlet I had in my van, and realized I gave them to Harry for his work. Okay. "I'll go home with my beautiful tacos and if there's a pamphlet at home, I'll drive it back up to him and still have no idea what I'm going to say to the guy." Get home - they're all at Harry's work - not one in sight. So I made my mind up to get one on Wednesday while at church for worship practice and happen on a couple more toxics on my way home.

I am no good, never have been, at talking to people. My question to you is: Do you have any tricks or special mind frames while you're talking to people you don't know? I can't stress how bad I am at this. How do you get comfortable?? I'm all about the comfort, you know.

You're awesome!
Don't sweat it... just have fun with it. It could be the best thing that has ever happened to them.

You could say "I'll have two hard shell tacos, a large Coke, and I'll order a churro if you come to church with me on Friday night." Bribery always works.

Seriously though, it's hard. I'm totally with ya.

That is brilliant, heth! I'll give it a shot.

Uhh, word verification is xtyaprmq. Is it just me, or are they getting longer?

Debbie said...

The word verifications are become sentences, no, it's not just you.

i always try to find a common ground when talking to new people I listen to them talk to others first and then jump in when I think it's okay. it's like jumprope:)

When led to speak to someone about Chrsit I di my emergency mini prayer and ask God for guidance and to give me the right words to say. To grant me favor with the person and that they can see Jesus in me somehow

Side note- I had to change my blog address for dramatic reasons Click on my name for the new one:)

Be Blessed
