The Top 10 Things People Do Even Though They Are Inconvenient

It's my favorite week of the year: Vacation Bible School week! In the midst of this very busy yet totally awesome week, I offer you this Top Ten List.

Top 10 Things People Do Even Though They Are Inconvenient.

  • Number 10: Visiting beloved elderly in nursing facilities.
  • Number 9: Cleaning the grill for a cookout.
  • Number 8: Selling (or buying) Girl Scout cookies.
  • Number 7: Annual physicals.
  • Number 6: Taking finals rather than failing classes.
  • Number 5: Attending out of town sports events being played by kids we love.
  • Number 4: Going to graduation ceremonies in which we know only one person.
  • Number 3: Getting our teeth cleaned.
  • Number 2: Attending middle school band concerts.*
  • And the number 1 thing people do even though it is inconvenient is: Sitting outside on a cold rainy morning at a kid's soccer game.
Vacation Bible School is also not convenient. Participate anyway. It’s good for you.
 
*Unless said middle school’s band teacher is Greg Love.
If Greg Love is the band teacher, such concerts are delightful.
