General Conference Jitters

In approaching another Conference weekend where a new apostle will be named, is it just me that gets nervous about possibly receiving 'The Call'? My palms are getting sweaty just typing this.

Would I go with Mike T. Young? Perhaps pull an J. Golden Kimball with M. Terrance Young, or maybe just MT Young?

Well, I guess we'll see what happens in a few days. Anyone care to take bets at 1:8 odds?

Nuts, that probably just lowered my chances.




  1. Dear Bishop,
    No offense, but I'm pretty sure you have no reason to be nervous. You have to have a bit more tact to receive a "call." Plus, your reference along the side of your blog which refers to our missionaries as juvenile delinquents pretty much squelched your chances. Sorry. I'd change your chances to 1:1000.

  2. Dear Bishop Young,

    Make that 1:1,000,000,000. I love your blog but being dyslexic has made it difficult engaging in anything that has virtual reality included in it. I thought for sure your note said left hand side but maybe I was wrong.

    Would you be kind enough to help me with directions? I located the Spanish Fork 399th Ward in the directory but cannot find your ward. Would like to introduce myself if I am ever able to locate where I am. Thanks.


  3. Vanessa - I call 'em as I see 'em. Believe me, there's been worse. Check out J Golden Kimball quotes, for example:

    Ricky - I should have made it more clear. While we are welcoming to the technology-challenged, we have some reservation with people named after a mongoose, and Joaquin Phoenix.
