Well, I try.

What do you say when the living prophet, the president of the LDS Church, the big man, the Lord's anointed, is walking down the hallway toward you with his lunch, and he says, "You walk fast, don't you?"

If you're me, you say, "Well, I try."

If you're anyone else you say, "Ha yeah." Or "How are you today sir?" Or "Yup. I'm on a mission."

But if you're me, you don't think quickly on your feet, you end up saying, "Well, I try." Which sounds snotty if you ask me. And then you feel awkward.

And then, when he responds with, "You're a track star." What do you say?

If you're me, you smile and keep charging forward.

If you're anyone else, you might say, "Thank you sir." "I haven't got the right shoes for that sir." OR "Well, I try. Sir."



  1. Lol. I love those awkward moments in the halls!. Usually I just smile and then stare at the ground until I'm a safe distance away.

  2. You could easily write a humor column, my friend. I love this post.

  3. Hahahaha, I totally would've done the same. Too funny! xo

  4. That is hilarious! Even though what you said wasn't bad, I know what you mean about not being able to think your feet. I'm terrible at it! At least you didn't literally run into him and make him spill his lunch or anything.

  5. At least you didn't ask for his autograph...


Tell me something good.
