Cardine: Scanning Fiend

Happy Monday to all my readers! Okay, so Monday usually stinks. But, despair not, for I have a treat today! Last week, I went to the baby blessing of ... Ewan's little brother. I'll have to come up with a name for him. Maybe Lou? Anyway, I was sitting next to my excellent cousin... um... Dusty when he discovered a fantastic treat in the hymnbook! Get ready. I present to you: crazy female notes from sacrament meeting! Enjoy!



I think something was missing here...












I'm not exactly sure I got the order right. It's so hard to follow. There are probably some pages missing ... or maybe my neural pathways can't follow theirs. It's hard to tell.

My best estimate at age is 19. Mr. Darcy made it in the note. Ah, that Jane Austen. I loved "freekin." That was awesome. Same with starting one word and finishing it on the next line, as in "mome-
nt." And the part where she calls her friend "narsacist." Oh, that is a jewel.

All I really know is that these are future mothers of children. Probably in just a couple years, too. And that scares me a little.

unreal... and frightening...

After I read these notes I tried to scan the congregation and guess who had written them. I didn't see any obvious candidates. I think they're younger than 19.

Cardine said...

Yeah, I HOPE they're younger than 19, but who knows? They could have been people from a different ward, I suppose.

tearese said...

that was great! And you know there are conversations like this going on in wards all over the country. Or at least the state.

Holy cow, that is funny - and, like Sarah said - a little frightening.

I also loved her friend calling her a "narsacist" for only being interested in a guy's looks. Get that girl a dictionary!

I can't say that I wouldn't be a wee bit embarrassed if someone stumbled across notes I wrote to Missy/cousins/brothers/Mom in church. Which is why I did a better job of destroying them.

P.S. Thanks for sharing your discovery with us. :)

That's so funny! They probably are dying of embarrassment thinking that the missionary will find their notes.

Mellissa said...

Um, my daughter will be a teenager in (gulp) three years. I PRAY she doesn't turn out to be a "narsacist."

And Julie isn't kidding when she says she would be a wee bit embarrassed if someone found notes passed between us from our teenage years. The embarrassment factor would definitely go up if they fell into the wrong hands. Y-I-K-E-S!

Cassie said...

Oh my word that was awesome!! I love finds like that. Totally perked up my day.

Wow, Cardine-- A NOTE written between two teen-age girls??? This might be valuable property in a few years. I thought teen-age girls only text each other these days. Okay, they were in church. (Not that being in church stops some people.) So, maybe they wanted the missionary to find the note?


...I thought we had sister missionaries in our area.

Cardine said...

Wow. This post was popular. If only I had a bigger supply of found notes. Maybe I'll have to risk extreme embarrassment and post some of MY notes from high school.

And, Mellissa and Julie - maybe this WAS a note of yours. I mean, one of the girls was named Melissa. But wait, it's spelled wrong, and you guys tend to have good spelling and know the definition of narcissist. So, nevermind.

Banana - I think they were referring to a guy that is from your town and is on a mission elsewhere as the missionary. And then there's just another random guy that is the 'rapist.' But who knows? It really was hard to follow.

This post was better entertainment than the movie I watched last weekend!

Next time sacrament meeting gets boring I'm gonna go through all the hymnals looking for notes. :)

This just reminds me of when I was a 19 year old girl. err... well, you know what I mean.
