If you have ever read these children's books you will know what it
is like to be around missionaries.
For example... If you give a mouse a cookie,
he is bound to ask for a glass of milk
And if you give a moose a muffin,
he is going to want some jam to go with it.
I have found that if you give a missionary a ball
he is going to want to play a very physical game.
Here are the assistants playing dodge ball off the balcony.
No wait, first it was "Catcher's Flyer Up"
Then a little dodge ball
If you give an Elder a ukulele...
He is going to ask the President if he can play Jason Mraz - "I'm Yours"
And the President will say "No"
If you give an Elder a piano..
He will want more time to play...
These missionaries do not really act like the mouse or the moose.
They are perfectly refined and very well mannered men...
we are all actually a work in progress.
