Stranger?

More often than not, there are no strangers in my life. I'll talk to anybody like I've known them for years. But then I have days where I don't give a darn about people and will ignore everyone around me, though I usually get over it pretty quick. And very, very, rarely, I'm kinda shy.
So anyway... Today I was sitting in Sunday School in my new ward and an attractive gentleman sat down next to me. I was reading my scriptures when he sat down and he introduced himself and we chatted for a moment and then I turned back to my scriptures. He leaned down and looked at me and when I looked up, he smiled and said, "I know I've totally met you before." Me, "Probably." I went back to my scriptures. He just started talking until I looked up again and engaged in conversation with him. Persistence is a huge attraction factor for me, so my introversion flew out the window and we became thick as thieves. It was good to have someone to laugh at people with. People kept making completely random off-topic comments about the lesson or comments that weren't doctrinal and ya'll know I can't help but laugh. He laughed with me. It was nice. In the middle of the lesson, he started rolling up his shirt sleeves and I started to turn to help him and I realized that I really don't know him and just looked back at my scriptures. I'm so used to the 2nd ward where all the guys are like family and I can be all hands on like that. Chicken! I totally should've just taken care of business. I don't know where these sudden shy moments come from. Geez.

hehe, maybe in situations like that you should ask if they need help instead of just doing. I dunno it's ok to by shy sometimes.

Speaking of strangers, I just wanted to say thank you. Last month you were the very first person to comment in my blog on my very first entry. I had started it but not finished it enough to put it public yet, or so I thought. Was my face red to see that I had indeed made my rough draft public, you had responded, and I had gone silent. So a belated thank you for being the first to comment. (I feel like you should get a prize.) :-)

I've read some of your blog and you do good work. It's hard work that not everyone can do and I thank you for that too.
Susan

It's only been 2 days, so no, I haven't seen him again. I couldn't go to FHE and find him either, cuz I had to work til 10pm.

You are such a nice person!

Makes me feel bad about throwing a book at that kid in health class.
