I was just about to get into the shower, and I decided to lift some weights real quick. So I walked in, realized that the bar had 150lbs on it (that’s too much for Adam). So, I went over to one side, and took off 25lbs and then proceeded to take off the 50lbs.
What happens when you have 75lbs on one side of the bar, and nothing on the other side? Well, I can tell you. The side with the 75lbs instantly falls down, swinging the other side of the bar up into the air (somehow missing Adam!) and it slams itself into the wall, with enough pressure to go right through the wall (hence the picture). The holes I made were the biggest one on the right, and the smaller one below that. Luckily I noticed that the two left holes had been made previously by one of their other kids- but I still felt like a complete idiot. Now I have to explain this to my host-family. [Sidenote: I just did show my host-mom. She laughed. A lot!]
Well, off to sermon preparations…hmm, can I turn this into a sermon illustration?
