What is something that boys have, that girls don't, that starts with the letter P?




I had a Primary Presidency meeting at my house yesterday morning and at the end of the meeting Sister Reed (who is our dear President and is in her 70's) shared a funny story with us. Apparently last Sunday in the neighboring ward the woman who was conducting Sharing Time opened her lesson with the above question, "what is something that boys have, that girls don't, that begins with the letter P?"

Now, how this poor woman couldn't have seen what was coming is beyond me. Obviously every child began raising their hands or just shouting out a certain part of the male anatomy. The answer she was looking for was "priesthood", boys will someday receive the priesthood. Perhaps we are all just more perverse than the teacher conducting but, honestly, what was your first thought when you saw that question?

Note: For those of you who aren't LDS, Primary is the program for children aged 3-12 that meets during the second and third hours of church. The Primary is divided up into classes by age but for a portion all of the classes meet together and a lesson is taught, i.e. Sharing Time.

Hmmm... now I will think of male enhancement drugs when I see that mormonad.

That's hilarious.

Oh, that's so funny. How could the woman even think they'd produce the priesthood answer? No. Not a possibility.

When I told James this little story he didn't believe me that it really happened, he thought that it was just one of those pass along stories that filter through the church, but when I told him that Sister Reed's daughter was standing right there as it happened he was stunned that an adult would even think to say that to rowdy kids.

I laughed so hard when she told us this story. I almost wish that one of the teachers in our ward would have said it so I could have heard what the kids in our primary would have responded. Classic.

That made me laugh out loud. It's really amazing she didn't think of that other "P" word...because it's certainly what popped into my head first.

That's so funny I almost "p"eed myself. I knew from the start what you were talking about since I taught that lesson....poor lady.
