"I Have A Favor To Ask Of You..."

"I have a favor to ask of you."

My wife shyly asked a few weeks ago.

Now, that simple sentence can mean a lot of things. It's one of those situations where you kind of need to be there to understand just what the "favor" might be. In this case, I knew, by the way she was asking, that it wasn't going to be a huge thing like getting up on a ladder and fixing the loose siding, or make a call for her she didn't want to make herself.

No, this was something she needed me to do, and after she asked me, I realized that to her, the favor was a bigger deal than it was for me.

"Sure," I said. "What's up?"

"Can you MC our talent show?"

"Of course!"

I did and I had a blast. I got to dress up in the tuxedo I bought from the Deseret Industries. I found a corny website with very bad clean jokes and we had a very fun evening. The girls who performed did an amazing job--each one of them.

It's fun MC'ing an event where the people there want to have a good time. They want to be entertained. And when they laugh at the following joke:

"What's white and cannot climb a tree?  A fridge."

You know they're going to have fun and I'm going to have fun, too. Good times!


  1. YEA! Okay, I love three things about this. I adore the relationship you and my sweet Lynda have. (Okay, so she's really YOUR sweet Lynda. Whatever!) I love that you were so willing and had so much fun doing it. And I laughed so hard at that stupid joke! It sounds like it was a great night!

    1. Thanks for the three comments, and all the other comments! It really was fun. And, yes, the rest of the jokes were just as funny and just as bad. Thanks again!
