The Bathtub Test

It doesn't hurt to take a good hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started.

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

As I was washing dishes, I looked over and saw my roommate's jar of Jif peanut butter sitting on the counter. Then I saw the little label which read "#1 choice of choosy moms." Hmm, I wonder what criteria Jif uses to define choosy? Is it only moms who choose Jif that are choosy? Or maybe it's a certain number of moms out of so many who choose Jif. Maybe some moms are choosy in some things but they don't care what type of peanut butter they buy for their family, are they still considered choosy? Probably not, since they didn't buy Jif. Maybe Jif is bought more often than other brands and that's why they consider themselves more chosen. Any thoughts?

Then I kept on thinking, how choosy am I? Should I be choosier? (is that a word?) Are some of the things I watch, listen to, read, or spend my time doing not quite appropriate? Are they uplifting and a good use of time and helping me to progress toward my goal of being more like Heavenly Father? Not that the things are really bad, but if they are not uplifting, maybe I'm not choosy enough and could be making better choices. All this from one little statement. Thanks Jif, for helping me to be more choosy.
