Conversations with Smiths- Part 10

Remember yesterday when I mentioned that we tend to get a leeetle bit off track during scripture study time?

We had just read this scripture:

18 Lift up thine eyes round about and behold; all these gather themselves together, and they shall come to thee. And as I live, saith the Lord, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on even as a bride. [1 Nephi 21:18, but quoting Isaiah 49]

Nathaniel: Is this scripture telling us to tie up our wives?


Todd: What?


Caleb: Hey, Dad, I guess you need to tie up Mom.


Todd to me: What is he talking about?


Me: Binding up brides, naturally.


Todd: Um, Ok.


Me: Ha. Good luck.


Benjamin: That's true. If Mom doesn't want to be tied up, there's no way Dad would be able to do it.


Nathaniel: Mom would beat you up if you tried, Dad.


Caleb: Yeah. Mom would win.


Todd: [who thought he was being too quiet for the kids to hear, waggles his eyebrows at me] Well, I didn't know you were into that sort of thing.


Me: [Smirking at him with one eyebrow raised] You don't know everything about my past.


Benjamin: [The one sitting furthest from us, but the only one who heard] Ahh! [Looking completely horrified! Eyes bulging wide open, face frowning, and then curling himself into a ball on the couch to whimper.] Don't want to know! Don't even want to think about it! Aahhahahaha! Scarred for life. Life, I tell you!


Todd: Oh, stop. We're your parents. We have sex. Get over it.


Benjamin: Ahhhh! Make it stop!!!


Nathaniel: And THEN you can use the tied up brides as Christmas trees; you know, with all the ornaments you hang on them after you bind them up.


Me: PLEASE, stop talking, Nathaniel.


Todd: [snapping the scriptures closed and sighing peevishly] I guess we're done with scriptures for tonight. I don't know why I even bother some nights. [looking at all of us who are giggling and snorting]


And again we must say, Poor Todd.

Rolex feels that because they put so much rolex replica sale effort into recognizable designs and brand DNA, having all types of different designs out there will damage their image, create customer confusion, and degrade from a look and feel that they have groomed for their products. In other words, rolex replica sale puts a lot of time and effort into how their watches look and wants to make sure that when people see a rolex replica uk on someone's wrist, they receive the high quality experience that people associate with the brand. The second reason why Rolex doesn't want replica watches uk companies to customize their watches is sort of related to the first, and is more specific in regard to the quality of parts and legibility. In addition to Rolex replica watches sale wanting people to "know a Rolex when they see one," Rolex replica watches uk wants to make sure that people's perception of their product development and finishing standards are consistent.
