I worked as a baptizer in the Ogden Temple - figured it was the only way I
could serve and still stay awake.  Never boring - get bored and you drown.
I finally had to quit - couldn't stay quiet that long.  After a while you
get tired of old men telling you to be quiet.

But it was great for the time I was there.  Maybe do it again sometime, but
not soon.
