Scene: Youth Valentines Dance Saturday Night
The dance had just started, youth gathering but not yet dancing. I was going around checking the tables—straightening tablecloths, generally fidgeting with stuff.
Near the front of the room we have a round table with two large "igloo" coolers with ice water. I thought it was weird how one cooler was facing out the door and the other was on the opposite side facing the stage. Clearly, they would look better facing into the room, so I changed them. Satisfied with the improved aesthetic, I turned to walk away.
Behind me, I heard this terrible sound: CRASH! WOOSH!
About a million gallons of ice water went sliding into the dance floor as the table totally tipped over and the tablecloth, decorations and balloons went flying every which way. AAARGH! In that instant of clarity I understood why they had been on the table the way they were. Hmmm. Fortunately, a bunch of very helpful teenagers came to my aid. Armed with mops and paper towels, I had more helpers than I knew what to do with (except Tyler. I think he was hiding in the bathroom so he didn't have to admit he knew me).
The night got better from there.
These are some of my favoritest women serving in Stake YW with me! These were toward the end of the night so I think I look a little haggard, but I love them so much I had to include! (Thanks Cassie & Dave for the photobooth!)
