Yeah.... We Totally Love You!

So, funny story.

There is a couple at church that Hod and I quite like.  They are just super cute, and we've talked multiple times about getting together.  But we never have.  Sunday, Hod was talking to the MR about how "We should get together."  The MR agreed.  And I could just see it happening like it always does.  "Hey, lets get together, Yeah, let's..."  And then we never do it.  So, I poked my head in and said, "You should actually plan something".  And they did!  We had plans to get together and play games and get to know each other.

6:00 rolls around, I'm thinking about making caramel popcorn to take over, and I turn to Hod and ask, "Dear, can you remind me of their names?"  Now to this point, 98% of all conversations with this couple was Hod talking, and I was normally busy doing RS stuff.  I think I had been introduced to them once, and I liked them, but I'm bad with names.  Hod's response to my question was, "Uh... I'm not sure?"  WHAT??? REALLY???  You have GOT to be kidding me!  We are going over in one hour and we don't know their names?  My mind was racing... do you think they'd notice if we never called them by name?   We spent most of the next hour on our Ward's website, but not every couple had pictures, so we couldn't find it by that.  Hod started calling friends who may have known, I started calling friends (One who did know her name, but we were still lost on his) and FINALLY we found one person who had records so they knew.  And A LOT of people got a really good laugh.  It was such a random strange moment.  Really, imagine this.  You call a friend and the conversation goes like this, "Hey, so we're getting together with this couple tonight... and they looked like this at church, and they are really nice... do you know their names?"  So awkward!

The good news is, we went, we knew their names, I don't think I'll ever forget them, and we had a wonderful time.  I hope we can be friends.  And maybe someday, we will tell them our awkward story.

That is so you. Unfortunately I is also so me. I have become quite good at greeting lovingly greeting people without mentioning names, but I'm quivering inside afraid that's not going to be enough
