In many a Church lesson, we have learned about these 2 men, and have asked ourselves which one we most resemble. I have always sided with Nephi. He was obviously the clear choice. No way was I a Laman.
During my morning scripture study the other day I read these verses, and had to laugh at myself
Whoa. Guess there is some Laman in me.
I am the 1st to admit- I am not a happy person when I am hungry. I completely shut-down. Some people can function without food, not me. I am way better suffering from a bout of insomnia (whether stress or socially induced!) than I am from an instance of low-blood sugar. I become easily irritated, a little more snappy, or just stare at the world as if I couldn't be more bored. It's become the joke among my closest friends as they'll often quip, "Time to feed Addie" when I get a bit ornery.
