New Jersey Morristown mission
This boy makes me laugh every week. He also sometimes makes me send him emails that say "don't do that again". Just because it's free doesn't mean it's a good idea if you know what I mean. Here is part of his letter home. Enjoy.
So this week. We had a normal week here on this week's installment of Jersey Shore. This week the sister missionaries who live close to us literally were dying. They got some kind of stomach thing and we had to take them to an urgent care. They're ok now though. Also this week we put this family (Sanchez) on date for next month and they are literally the coolest people. Like they're so funny. So so funny. And I don't know I just feel really happy. People are great. My companion is the literal funniest guy ever too. I've just had the best companions. Also this week we had MLC which is where all the ZL'S get together and we have a meeting with President and he's just a nice guy. Anyway. That's like a reader digest version of my week. Nothing too exciting and all the weeks kind of bleed together.
You're probably wondering why I am writing you so late. OK so get this. This is literally the funniest thing. So our apartment gets these coupon things regularly and are usually pretty lame but I looked this week and found 2 FREE TANNING SESSIONS AT OUR LOCAL TANNING SALON. Hahahahahaha It was so funny. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE. I didn't even tan and I don't even care. I didn't know if I was uncomfortable or happy. It was a blur. However I won't be making any trips back any time soon due to the high risk of skin cancer and the lack of dignity. Don't know which reason is the motivating factor. I did like the glasses though. Don't judge me.
Anyway other than that escapade today we have a baby shower to attend at 3:30. Because we get invited to those kind of things. I can't wait to guess the baby's name. 50% chance it's some derivative of "José." Hispanics are a lot of things but creative in regards to food and names are not one of them.
What else is new with me? Hmm. This week I ate more guinea pig. Gross. I literally made a robot this week. It's this Facebook page bot thing that president wanted to try out so he asked me to make one. I am Robot King. I have almost finished the BoM again, which is cool. I would love a leather BoM but it has to be in Spanish. If not then save one for when I'm home. I only read the scriptures in Spanish now. I like it.
Anyway though. You're the best mom ever. I love you SO. MUCH. SO SO MUCH. Let me know
what I can do for you.
