I'll warn you right now: this post is not as interesting as the title would lead you to believe. Sorry.
But last night I was reading in James (you know, the Bible one, not the awesome jerk from Flash) and I came across Chapter 1 Verse 21, which commands one to "lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness." And frankly, I just started laughing. For me naughty means two things--my kids are being naughty (I don't want to call them bad, so naughty is nicer), or naughty as in, well, a more adult meaning. I don't really have to spell it out, do I?
So pairing naughtiness with superfluity just made me laugh. I thought it would make a good album title. Hot Stuff has always liked the name "Primal Gyrations" for a band (oddly enough, taken from a church publication in which someone was complaining about the way teenagers dance), and wouldn't that be a great follow-up album to their self-titled debut? Primal Gyrations and the Superfluity of Naughtiness Tour.
Odds are I probably didn't get the message I was supposed to in my scripture study last night.
Another section I just can't read without laughing is from another book of scripture. This chapter uses the phrase "fruit of [my, his] loins" TWENTY-ONE times. When Hot Stuff and I used to read chapters together every night before bed (now we just read verses as a family) we could never get through this one without laughing. Thanks, Lehi, we get it--loins, fruit, yup. I just, well, eew. Couldn't you say kids? Descendents? Anything else?
So, even reading the scriptures is more fun with me around. Less reverent, but more fun.
(Happy 100th post, ya'll. Thanks for liking me.)
