I think it would be funny to plan things to say and questions to ask at a first temple experience....here's what I've come up with.
1- at the washing and annointing, say something like "this shield is a bit awkward and revealing. at least I'm not naked. how weird would that be?" the temple worker won't realize you know that fact and squirm.
2- when you're told not to reveal your new name, look confused and say "but everybody who came with me already knows cause they used the exact same name...."
3- ask why women have to veil themselves.
4- act upset and ask, "there's a true order of prayer? so I've been praying in false way?"
5- sit in the back and tell all the workers who want you front and center you're just fine. It will bug them you aren't following protocol.
