Life Redoos!

J brought home his pictures today. After all we went through on Picture day, now this:

"Mom, I don't like my smile. I don't think that Olivia C. will draw a heart around my face in the yearbook. Can I have redoos?"

Redoos sound great. Can I have life redoos?

I agree we should definitely get redos. I'm glad I found you. It's a breath of fresh air to see your awesome truthful site!

I've spent far too many years of my life hoping for a few redoos of my own, or just one big one would be nice. I've learned (and am learning) that the atonement makes redos unnecessary (which is nice, since it is impossible) as long as we keep plugging away the best we can.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
