From: Mitchell Knightly, President of the Abbottsville Stake
Subject: MY FINAL WARNING!
Recently I suspended all Single Adults activities because of your gross mistreatment of our esteemed Stake Single Adults leader, Ricky Foote. I met with each of you in extensive one on one interviews and listened to your concerns. I felt we had reached an understanding, that you were sufficiently humbled, and that I could finally reinstate our inspired Stake Single Adults program. Accordingly, I instructed Ricky to plan a fun New Year's Eve activity.
Then I was appalled to hear that after all of Ricky's labors, Sister Millie Loomis was the sole attendee at the Stake Single Adults' New Year's Eve Dance. Even her date failed to show up -- after she'd gone to the trouble to handcraft an invitation out of Sweet Tarts and deliver it via carrier pigeon.
But I was more disturbed when I heard that upon returning to the church parking lot, Ricky found the carrier pigeon locked inside of his car with the following note attached:
Sorry to POOP out on you, but we won't be DROPPING by the dance because we're tired of being treated like CR#P and think you're full of S%$T.*
*edited for civility's sake.Clearly, I was wrong to assume you had learned your lesson.
As I said before, I know that Ricky is young enough to be your son, and that, in fact, one of you is his actual mother. But again I remind you that what Ricky lacks in age, he makes up for in inspired wisdom and priesthood authority. Moreover, he is devoted to all of you. He wants nothing more than to find a sweetheart for his old principal, an eternal companion for his former pediatrician, and for himself, a new step-dad. Again, I repeat:
|It's so tasty too!|
After praying to our Heavenly Father, consulting with Ricky and your respective bishops, and evaluating your individual situations and standings in the community, I have made the following decision.
During the period of your detention, I assign the following:
- Complete the Official Worthiness Questionnaire.
- Fast and pray.
- Read Doctrine and Covenants 132 and Behind Every Good Man by John Bytheway.
- Shampoo the interior of Ricky Foote's Hyundai.
- Take turns feeding and caring for the pigeon.
- Staff the nursery at the upcoming Stake Valentines Day Dance.
- Write a 500 word essay on what it means to be a "Menace to Society."
- Make imaginative invitations asking that special someone to a future Single Adults' dance. Supplies can be found in your ward Primary closet.
After all, as your humble servant it is my job to look after your best interests.
