What I learned in church today

There is this girl (woman) that goes to our church who shall remain nameless. I don't even know her well; not more than a "hello" or smile on Sunday mornings. She is very pretty, the type of pretty that would look good standing outside of a stage coach with a parasol and a giant fru-fru dress. Daniel (my devoted spouse) has even commented before on how pretty she is. (It was something guyish, like "What is she doing with HIM?" but I got the drift.)

ANYWAY. One of the most noticable things about her is that when she smiles, her eyes get squinty and turn into these little rainbow shapes. Or maybe little sunrises, I am not sure. But they are cute. She makes you want to get her to smile. I am sure this sounds very weird to you, but the point of my story is that I spent a good majority of church this morning trying to make my eyes into little rainbows, as well. I am sure this was to the great entertainment of people across the aisle, because I was distorting my face in a rather painful attempt at cuteness. I was in my own little world until I caught a little girl watching me.

I don't think I attained "cute rainbow eyes" but I am also not sure who saw my display. I probably should give Daniel some background information so that he won't be confused by the looks of sympathy next week.

Now I'm really upset that I've missed two weeks in a row of going to church with you guys! I guess next week you're either going to have to wake up earlier, or we'll just have to take our time in the morning and go to late service!

Well...I must admit I'm not too surprised by your squinting exercises. Being the middle child, you have always had a way of entertaining yourself, oblivious to who might be staring. I envy you, actually. I have always been the stare-er and not the stare-ee.


Did you at least get some crescent moons goin?
