Imagine Me, A Missionary

We had the missionaries over for dinner tonight and I did some Mormon letters proselyting of my own. Since my review of Twilight for Dialogue came with three contributor's copies of the journal and since I knew one of the missionaries is somewhat the literary type (last time they were here, we talked about Orson Scott Card and some other books) and since he picked up the copy of Bright Angels and Familiars: Contemporary Mormon Stories that was left (maybe purposefully) on the kitchen counter and spent more than a few minutes looking through it, I gifted him one of my two extra copies of Dialogue and introduced him to Irreantum (Volume 9.2/10.1, which he spent some time reading). And some of our dinner talk was spent discussing literature.

It may have been a distraction, but boy, did it feel good to feign some kind of literary expertise.
