The One Where You Really Shouldn’t Mess With This

The missionaries learned this lesson one day. Elder Hobley and Elder Crane came in one night with a sneak nerf dart attack. They knew they were in trouble when they hit me in the face a few times. I wasn’t angry, but obviously I couldn’t just let it go. I told them that they should be expecting retribution. The very next morning, I had my faithful sidekick Tyler with me, and the two of us scored six giant rolls of saran wrap from the grocery store. We caught up with their poor, defenseless car at a district meeting that morning, and it clearly needed to be wrapped for freshness... we did everything possible to ensure that it wouldn’t spoil.


A couple hours later they came home. We all acted like nothing had happened...they did... I did. And then, Elder Hobley, from the kitchen: “Touche, Sister McD... touche.” And just in case anyone decides to mess with me again, I have my follow-up plan laid away in the garage. I don’t want to use it. But I will if I have to.

You have Elder Hobley in the garage?

Ni-ice!
One of the fun parts of this is that every missionary at the meeting got to see their car and laugh at them.
lol

That is so funny! We're going to try that saran wrap fun!

How cool that you have the missionaries living with you.

(I just found your blog through Pikes Pickles. I love your style, I'll be back often!)

Amy, I'm sorry, you missed the contest by mere hours. I will give you a Saran Wrapping tip to soften the blow. It is DEFINITELY a two-man job. You have to be able to hand the rolls of Saran Wrap back and forth to properly encase the vehicle for optimum freshness:)

Thanks for the tip!

Elder Hobley was my first missionary and he does not know I've been baptized. Do you have any contact information for him? My name is Miriam and I am now in the Sabre Springs ward. My phone is 858-356-7497. I'd like to tell him that I was Baptized.
