What is something unique about you?

So we moved into our new ward a few weeks ago and the relief society asked Lauren to fill out a questionnaire.  One of the questions was "What is something unique about you?"  Lauren wrote down, "my husband and I are both non high school graduates."

Yes, in case any of you did not know, neither Lauren nor I graduated from high school.  And we didn't get our GED either.  I just barely graduated from my undergraduate program at BYU but before that, the last thing I graduated was Junior High--but with flying colors!

In any case, Lauren found our new ward's blog the other day.  Each new relief society sister is highlighted and it gives different facts from the questionnaire about the sister.  Anyone who visits the site will read about Lauren and will read: "What makes Lauren unique?   Both Lauren and her husband are high school graduates!"  Our picture is posted just above.  I'd just as soon have our picture taken down so that no one associates that "fact" with our face.

The blog is http://smithfield14.blogspot.com/ if you would like to see it for yourself.

The conversation that I think will be really awkward for anyone involved is when somebody at church decides to congratulate us on our high school diplomas and we'll have to tell them that we didn't even graduate from high school.  We're frauds!
