We recently moved into a new ward, and therefor that means a new Ward Information Sheet. I found this old one from 2009 I had filled out before, and thought I should compare it to the new one I just filled out in 2012.

Do you play any musical instrument? If so, what? No
Do you lead music? No (I learned my lesson after being the ward pianist and chorister for a year)
Special Skills: CPR and First Aid Instructor
So I lost most of my jokes, but I learned my lesson when it comes to mentioning special skills. I could not tell you how many times I got asked to translate in my earlier ward... it was twice. I still received a comment from the ward clerk that my answer of "super senior" and "until I get married" caused them to laugh when they were reading it. Unfortunately I believe that means I will be getting a calling where I will be obligated to be fun or funny, those are always so much work.
