that's always been a little bit of pet peeve of mine..when people's facial expression is exaggeration meets shockingly disappointed, as they look at you with a sort of how-in-the-world-are-you-still-working-on-this look. i can't stand that. it's an insult that i don't think is necessary b/c my shame is already pretty evident to all: i'm laying down scrubbing the in between tiles using my index finger, trying to remove the excess shoe dirt and God knows what else from the floor, while sweating and looking as if i just got done running a marathon...yet, my feet have moved very little. do i need any more insults to bring me down any lower? i didn't think so. but anyways, it was funny b/c ever since i started people walked by and were very compassionate and felt sorry for me asking, "who is making you do this?" or "this is wrong!" or "they can't make you do this can they?" Well, i'm employed here and so, i do what they tell me. I didn't think it was so bad of a job until everyone starting telling me how bad i had it. i thought it was kind of fun. i mean, i had my mission and i knew what i had to do to finish. but the more i worked, the more people pitied me and by the end of the day, i was pitying myself enough for the entire hospital staff. funny how influencing co-worker comments can be, huh?
oh well, now, i must get ready for Worship Arts Camp at our church. It's a week long thing for 1st-6th graders and I get to teach the DRAMA portion of the program to them...so i know i'll have stories to tell. I did it two years ago and it was one of the most rewarding things i've ever been able to do for my church...which is why i said i'd do it again. teaching a 6 year old how to act (especially since they've never done so before) is difficult, but oddly funny and in the end, usually very rewarding. anyways, pray for me as i take on my group---i'm looking forward to it, but am always hesitant about whether or not i'll be able to teach them well enough. au revoir pour maintenant. ;)---sorry for my ramblings by the way. this was way too long.
