Cheeseburger smoothies, aren't.

I'm pretty disgusted that the rocker-screamer won AI last night, although I understand that he's more marketable. But if it really IS a singing competition, David A. won, hands down. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

We are cold here in Virginia. I'll be planting beans today in my jeans and sweatshirt and two pairs of socks. What's up with this?

Last night, Cory ran the teen meeting at church. Our teens have a separate service on Wednesday nights. They sing, take prayer requests, one gives a short devotion, and Mr. Morgan preaches. Since Mr. M was out of town yesterday, he asked one of the college students to run things, so Cory did. Cory does a great job preaching and the kids love him. Usually we have the service first, then a game, but Cory likes to stir things up a bit, so we had the games first.

He asked for four guys to volunteer. They stood behind a table at the front of the room. Each one received a can of Mountain Dew and Cory told them they'd be having a race to see who could drink it fastest. But just to make things interesting, he had each guy take off one shoe and sock. Jonathan didn't have socks, so Cory shared one of his. They popped the cans open, slid the sock over the can, and drank the soda through the sock. Did you catch that? Jonathan drank a Mountain Dew through Cory's sock. That had been on his foot. Are you sufficiently grossed out yet?

Then he asked for one girl and one guy volunteer. Of course after the last fiasco none of the girls would chance it, so Cory picked Rachel, who had missed the earlier game and didn't really know what was going on. Rachel was competing against Josh.

Each one received a Mountain Dew and a double cheeseburger from McD's. Rachel just knew she could win this one. But with Cory, things must be more interesting. Out came the blender. Each contestant was handed the Mountain Dew/double cheeseburger smoothie and the groaning began. Rachel tried holding her nose, but the chunks got the better of her. She couldn't drink it facing us so she turned around, and in the end, drank more of hers than Josh did. The reward? A Mountain Dew and a king-size Reese's.

I don't know about you, but I'm having a hard time keeping my coffee down just thinking about it.
