Our Story

So I shared Mary's story earlier in the week, but Pop Rocks and I are celebrating our fourth anniversary this week as well, and I thought I would share how we met.

The short answer of how we met is at church, specifically in Sunday School. But I thought I would share the long answer....

I was trying out a new church my senior year of college with a couple of friend. I walked into Sunday School and knew most everyone in the class from school. There were a few people I didn't know specifically a guy and a girl. They were sitting with each other and really hanging out with each other like good friends or, you know, a couple. Of course I assumed they were a couple and made a note. I wasn't really looking for a boyfriend as I am sure I had a crush on someone else at the time.

Well there was also a college Bible study after church on Wednesday's. I decided, at the prompting of friends, to start attending that as well. I decided to do so and since we often rode to church together I would attend the adult service each time. As you might know, the adult service is usually the first one over and so I would be the first one to the Bible study. Well Pop Rocks also attended the Bible Study and he started showing up early. We would talk and get to know each other and were becoming friends. (He was not in a couple with the cute blond girl, just really good friends, like from childhood friends.)

The spring Jr/Sr formal came around and I really wanted to attend with my friends, but they were pretty much all going in couples. I was not going to go without a date and none of the dates I thought I might have were looking promising.

One day, Pop Rocks abnormally decided to sit with our friends in chapel, His younger brother was with him. The three of us ended up walking out of chapel together. (Its odd that I was even in chapel, because I had a partial exemption that semester.... strange.) When we walked out it struck me that Pop Rocks was also invited to the Jr/Sr, so I decided to see if he was planning to go. He lived off campus and had not, in fact, received the invitation that was sent to his on campus mailbox. So I explained what it was, but he was uninterested. So I did the next best thing and asked his brother if he wanted to go with me (as friends, of course). He politely declined and out of nowhere, Pop Rocks face lit up and he agreed to go with me, as friends, of course.

I had promised to purchase my ticket that night at dinner, but got caught up talking to a friend about the whole "situation" and missed the ticket sales. I had to work the next day and was not going to be able to purchase one during the day. I was sitting in my office when my cell phone rang. It was a mutual friend of mine and Pop Rocks who, to my knowledge, had never called before....

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Mary Poser by Angel A.

I just finished the book Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville. In this book, dutiful pastor's daughter Mary meets Bollywood producer, Simha Das at the Nashville Film Festival and the many different events that follow send Mary on a roller coaster of emotions. When her ex finds out about Simha he appears back in Mary's life wanting to make amends. Her critical mother has to have opinions about everything in her family's life. Her brother, sister and father are all restless with their lives that have been lived in the same city. Her best friend from childhood is devious and manipulative. Plus, there are lots of other characters with their own set of problems.

What will the result be? Will Mary completely change or will she stay in the life that she has always known? 

I would tell you to read it to find out, but don't, seriously don't. 

This was by far the worst book I have read in a while. The events in Mary's life are described in …

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…
