I have to thank Meg for sharing this on her blog. If you are Mormon, single, or have ever been Mormon and single, or heck!, ever known a single Mormon, you will enjoy this. Or maybe you’ll hate it. You have you agency, but my agency chose to laugh at it.
On a similar note (this might be a stretch, but bear with me), I’m at work. At work we are encouraged to park at the parking terrace from our old campus and ride the shuttle bus to work. It’s only about a block away and I enjoy the covered parking, so I do it. Every now and again I get the privilege or riding with some interesting people. Girls with crushes on my boyfriend that give me dirty looks, hospital upper management, current events freaks, weather fanatics, etc. Let it be known my very favorite is the cell phone talker. This is a common occurrence, and generally isn’t really a big deal. I’ve had a conversation or two on the shuttle myself. Every now and again the single sided conversation is enough to completely make my day. Cue… this morning. I’m the first on the shuttle. Five more women get on after me, two of which were on cell phones. One girl ended her conversation about a third of the way through the ride with “Happy birthday, mom! I love you!” The second cell phone talker was much more entertaining. She was one of those passionate talkers. Very animated, and sitting directly across from me.
“What are you doing tonight?”
“I don’t know.”
“Oh yeah, how was that? I was TOTALLY thinking about you this morning!”
Heads started to turn in curiosity…
“NO WAY! So were you holding them hostage, or what?”
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That is AWESOME!”
The corners of my mouth started to creep upward into a smile despite my efforts to fight it.
More heads turning. Did she really just “Wooooo?” Cell phone talker is oblivious to her surroundings and completely focused on her conversation.
“And then you SHOT THEM???!!”
“OH MY GOSH! THAT IS AWESOME! NO WAY! AWESOME! THAT IS AWESOME! HAHA, AWESOME! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!”
It was kinda like this, but on a bus instead of the theatre:
Thank you, passionate cell phone conversation lady, for making me laugh so early in the day. I have no idea if she is Mormon, but I’m willing to bet she is single.
