How much humility can one person take?
I've decided as an active member in good standing (eh, pretty much) of the body of Christ I respectfully request a change in body parts. I would no longer like to be considered as the "ass" portion of the body because I've decided I'd rather be the appendix and here's why. Well first off to say that I've grown weary of being the ass is pointless and self explanatory, I've been one for a very long time and this change is long overdue. If I were saaaay, the appendix I would be accountable for some special but "unknown to man" function within the body even though honestly - I'd be mostly laid back, quiet and well hidden from view but all the while - busy, busy, going about your will God as an active participatory member but no one would ever notice me nor give me a second thought.
As the appendix, when I'm no longer needed I could go out with a
burst bang which would look impressive to the entire body and additionally my departure would leave an awesome scar - one which would give the entire body pride and fond memories of me and yet they'd still function beautifully without me - never even miss me. Did I mention the impressive scar?
* Disclaimer -This ain't no pity party, I'm simply tired of embarrassing myself over stupid stuff. (A part of the human condition I suppose.) I wonder if I can offer up "embarrassment" for poor souls?
