Toilets vs. Telephones

To all of you out there who get frustrated with me when I do not answer your emails or phone calls as quickly as you would like (or ever, sometimes – sorry about that), maybe this story will give you a little bit of insight into me.

First let me say, that by God’s grace, I am getting better at responding in a timely manner. But here is a glimpse into why you may not always hear from me when you think you should.

Yesterday afternoon I had two things that I wanted to get done: scrub the bathroom and make some phone calls for a friend to people that I didn’t know, asking them to sign up for something that I believed in. As the afternoon wore on, I realized that I was only going to be able to get to one of those two things.

I picked cleaning the extremely dirty bathroom.
