Weird Week, Day One.

So, this week I have the most diverse bunch of people in one group, ever. It's so fun. Also, a bit weird. There's no way I could share everything without showing you complete footage of the entire day, but I would like to give you a little something something to help create a scene for your mind. [sidenote: I will be incorporating my thoughts into the dialogue/descriptions as I report, and I will do so in the same manner as I presented this information]

Let's begin with dinner. Intentional time. So I see some students of mine and their table is full, but they offer to switch tables to sit with me. Looking back I see that this probably should've been clue number one. Instead I'm thinking, "yes, my students like me!" So we sit, and 3 minutes into the conversation Teddy decides he's going to be intentional with me. It went like this:
:Conversation about the weather:
Teddy: I want to go to Disney World
Jenna: Disney World is fun.
Teddy: Maybe our youth group could go. Maybe you could go with us.
Jenna: ohhh,mnnn,uh
Teddy: I'd ask you for your number, but you probably wouldn't give it to me
Jenna: [Did I miss something? Was that logical? I thought we were talking about vacationing...Oh no, I am so tired that I'm missing complete chunks of conversation now?] Yeah, I'm not giving you my number.
Teddy: Hmnn.
...[1.2 minutes]....
Teddy: Do you have any brothers or sisters?
Jenna: Yes, a sister, two brothers.
Teddy: How old's your sister?
Teddy: Is she hot?
Jenna: I'm sorry, what?
Teddy: Does she look good. Like her face. Is it good?
Jenna: [What does that even mean?! Why are you crazy? Why am I at this table? Has anyone seen Kellen's keys?!!!] Um, you are ridiculous, and that is a question I will not answer.
-Annnndddddd End Dinner Scene.

Then, after worship I decide to go to Sonic for some cheese tater tots. They bring me chili cheese tater tots though, so I politely decline and ask for just cheese stating "sorry, but I don't eat meat or I would just eat those" to which Sonic Friend replies emphatically, "Really? That's actually really cool" (Apparently being a vegetarian is the thing to do now.) So he goes to get the ones with just cheese which takes at least 7 minutes, but no fear because just when I think he's forgotten about me he returns with cheese tater tots, 4 coupons for free shakes and this: "Do people tell you you're pretty all the time?" To which I naturally reply, "uhmm, what? Oh, uh, no, but thanks, that's really sweet" [go go gadget super speed window roll-up]

And of course the day wouldn't be complete unless something else weird happened, so hello there county fair nightlife. There I was just hanging out by the horseshoes (dumb) and sweet baby Nick comes by and says, "hey, do you want this slushy" and I really don't so I tell him I'm good, but then he's all "yeah, I bought it for this girl, but when I took it to her, she said she didn't want it and walked away." OH NO! rude girls are not okay. So I felt bad for baby Nick and said, "I won't reject you!! Thank you" and took the slushy. And in his gratefulness he says, "thank you. I appreciate that...are you a leader? [yes] I think I saw you in the lunchroom earlier" And cue awkward conversation/shifty eyes.

Also today, my kids had a debate about how old I am and whether or not I'm married. The verdict? "25, and I knew you weren't married. You didn't have a boyfriend either do you?" No, I didn't. Furthermore, I don't. I'm not sure whether to be complimented or not. They think I'm 25 because I "act so old and grown up" but I'm not sure if they think "sheesh, why hasn't anyone snatched her up" or "yep, I knew it; she's practically a crazy cat lady already," and that my friends makes all the difference in whether or not this day was an 8 or 9 on the weirdodometer.

I'm soooooooo incredibly happy right now that you decided afterall to update - it's almost as if I can actually hear you telling the story. I'm lovin it. And by the way,(side note - does that still mean the same thing)Kim you are so right - there's your bright side Jen. Thanks for making me laugh ... again! The only thing better would be, yes, an awkward family photo to go along(only with your kids - not sonic dude) hearts and kisses.
