My friend and I were walking to campus today and we passed my religion teacher who said hi and remembered my name, which I thought was nice of him. The timing of the encounter was not so great, however, because my friend and I were discussing the details of the January sale at Victoria’s Secret. This may not have been as much of a problem if I didn’t naturally have one of the loudest voices ever, especially when I am discussing something I’m interested in. No, really, it’s embarrassing. My friends are considered loud people but they often need to remind me to please not shout in the movie theater. Even polite people (you know, those girls who won’t say anything even remotely mean unless they look at their feet while they do it) will occasionally ask me to quiet down.
I don’t think I’m the sort of person who is bawdy, tawdry, or generally naughty, *snigger* but I do have pretty bad timing. In situations like these I usually cope by imagining how it could have been worse. For example:
Other things that are not so great to be caught talking about in front of your religion teacher:
- How many times you have skipped church this month.
- Awkward moments in the girl’s locker room.
- Your lifelong goal to never spend more than half an hour writing your religion papers
- Your religion teacher.
And I’d like to end this post with a link to a youtube video that is hilarious (the video, not the link):
