Your relationship with your spouse and with God is like a triangle. God is at the top and you and your partner or on the bottom corners of the triangle. The closer each of you are to God the closer you are to each other. If one of you is closer to God than the other, then you’re further again. Work together to get closer to God and each other.
YHC put some work into this one. Maybe too much work. The steady rain lead to a Q fail for the first 5 minutes of the BC. With much talk on Facebook about whether or not we were a go, YHC somehow lost 6 minutes and arrived to the AO a minute early and still had to get on socks, shoes, gloves, and protect his wienke. Thankfully, Flo stepped up and started with some SSH while I got put together. How did he know we were starting with SSH? Impressive AO Qing, Flo! Well, my giant phone would’t fit in sandwich-sized zip loc bags. Seriously? So, Flo took the pax through body builders so I could get the paper version…in the rain. T-claps to Ramrod for the headlamp so I could see the paper. We made it through about 3 rounds before the paper started dissolving. Eventually, we had to go back to the phone and just hope it didn’t go for a swim. Luckily, it didn’t. The pax had a good time with this one. It’s amazing the Arnold knowledge that Sprinkles had. It was also surprising that the movie buff What?! did not have said knowledge. I mean we needed to do SOME body builders, right? Thanks, What?! Like Arnold, this BC will be back, but the trivia will have to be a little harder for Sprinkles. Great job by all for working some muscles to exhaustion.
