Distracted

Have you ever noticed how many missionary terms sound really dirty out of context? “Hump day,” “threesome” . . . (Shoot, even “missionary” . . .)

A normal human once commented to us that it was weird we'd talk about "committing" people.

Not dirty, but I'd never realized that to humans, that usually means sending them to the crazy house.

I've always hated talking about missionary 'threesomes'.

Even "companion" can sound a little weird.

I think you just ruined missionary work for me forever. Thanks a lot.

cavdawg - Not to mention "wards" and "institutes" . . .

Yeah. I've noticed those things too. I had a hard time not giggling when people talked about missions sometimes. . .

Oh good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. I always say "trio" in place of "threesome" when we talk about visiting teaching groups.
