It’s only funny because it’s true.

I have found the perfect excuse.

Two days ago a woman from my church in Grand Rapids called  to see if I would be interested in helping out with children’s church for the summer.  As much as I would love to spend every other other Sunday morning corralling excited pre-schoolers, I had to decline.  “I’ll actually be moving to Ukraine on June 18th.”  That sort of ends the discussion.

Door-to-door satellite t.v. salesman: It looks like you’ve got a prime location for a satellite here.  And I’ve got some really good deals.

Me: That’s great, but I’m moving soon.

Salesman: That’s no problem; we can move the satellite across town.

Me: I’m actually moving to Ukraine.

Salesman: Oh.

(He slowly backs away.)

Salesman: I don’t think we have service there.

And there was the the time a (really very wonderful) non-profit called to see if I had more time to volunteer in the next year.  “I’ll actually be in Ukraine this next year.”

I bet that’s not one they hear every day.

My favorite times of the year: when the weather is first cold enough to put socks on and when the weather is first warm enough to take my socks off.
