From the very beginning of President Packer's talk there was a frosty chill sweeping down from the Conference pulpit. Even his voice was hard; like Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade.
I had been looking forward to Conference. My family got together early for breakfast and the we all settled into our favorite spots to watch. I sat there with my mom, brothers and sisters and literally thought "Damn, you can forget about coming out to them any time soon." I got up after he spoke and excused myself. The rest of that session I spent driving around angry in the hills, listing on the radio.
Darth Vader's theme from Star Wars should have been playing while he spoke.
Let's see... what are the A B Cs of me? I'm just a guy living life, who happens to be gay. The fact that I'm also Mormon doesn't help, but hey, things could be worse. If you enjoy the kind of dumb humor found on Bazooka gum wrappers, then you might think I'm funny, and I'm at least smart enough to beat most of my friends watching afternoon Jeopardy. My big damn heart is what seems to get me into most of my troubles. Anything else you want to know just ask! I love comments and emails, and don't be shy. I promise I am super nice! (My mom thinks I am anyway!)
