An amusing thought came to me at church today. I guess I should start with a little confession: I have a small crush on one of the Sunday School teachers in my ward. Not a big deal; I just think he's cute. And funny. But that's really not the point of this post. That's just a little background for the story.
So today was the cute Sunday School teacher's turn to teach, and I found myself thinking that he looked rather nice today. He was wearing a long sleeved dress shirt, and I think guys look very nice in those. Don't worry, though; I quickly moved on and paid attention to the lesson.
A few minutes into the lesson, however, the teacher began talking about himself as an example of pride, mentioning how he had a moment of perhaps excessive pride that morning after getting dressed. He told us he was wearing his favorite pants and his fancy French-cuffed shirt with cufflinks and everything. Everyone chuckled as he mentioned how great he thought he was looking that day, and it was a good thing that everyone was chuckling because it gave me an opportunity to laugh at myself for checking him out earlier.
I was further amused, however, when a girl in the class later prefaced a comment that there wasn't anything wrong with getting all dressed up and going to church looking hot (she continued to talk about keeping pride under control). It was even better when I mentioned to my friends, after the lesson, that I'd been thinking he looked good before he mentioned it, and they told me they'd been admiring his cufflinks at the same time.
This led me to wonder if perhaps many of the young ladies in the room had been admiring our Sunday School teacher, which led me to wonder further how many of us had secret crushes on said Sunday School teacher. I've observed many times in singles' wards that the majority of the girls like a few of the guys, and the majority of the guys like a few of the girls (generally the few end up with the few, but that's not really the point here). Girls generally tell their close friends who they have a thing for, but as they don't tend to make it well known there's a chance that easily a dozen girls could like the same guy. I think that's funny. I don't know much about guys, but I suppose it could work in a similar way.
Anyway, there's my funny little story. Not much of a point besides me laughing at myself and being amused, but I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for reading.
