Well at least the Mormons won't poison you...

We live across from a Mormon ward house, as it is one of the oldest in the valley is it distinct from the others...it looks like your ordinary chapel house with old brick and stain glass windows. Parking in front of our house can be scarce sometimes due to Church activities...as I have parking in the back of the house this doesn't bother me so much as it does my friends and parents who try to find off street parking.

And while I seriously dislike the Mormon religion, some aspects of the culture are kinda nice...such as when a group of giggly 20 somethings rang my doorbell to give me a thank you note and some cookies for letting them park out front. Not that I have any choice in the matter, and honestly, I had no choice but to take the cookies and thank you card. And I had no choice but to eat them. And boy are they tasty....

I think that if that happened anywhere else in the states, you know- complete strangers giving you food, no one would trust to eat the food. But here...it is no problem.

And as I am the only one home tonight....I feel no guilt in eating all of these cookies myself. mmmmmmmm.....

You dislike the Mormon religion but you are Muslim? To risk a very flipant statement, all you have to do is change a few names and locations around and they are virtually the same religion. Even their origin stories are pretty similar!
