So I never thought I'd really see HIM again. It was so random. I guess I COULD pick him out of a crowd after all.

Yesterday morning I went to my cousin Monica's ward because their baby was being blessed. Their ward is in Sugarhouse. Right after Sacrament Meeting, the second row stands up and guess who was there? Mr. No Show -- Ben, who stood me up 3 weeks ago. We made eye contact, but he looked away like he didn't even recognize me. My mom was explaining something to me, but I didn't hear a word she said because my eyes were fixed on Ben as I tried to figure out if that was really him. I pointed at him and said, "You know what, I think that's the guy who stood me up." Lisa said, "It is!" Because I was just thinking that he went to Alta." Josh asked, "Do you want me to go smack him?" I just said, "No, let's get out of here" as I gathered everyone up and led them out the back, putting my sunglasses on in the process.

Someone stood you up? I know I don't know you, but I feel a little protective for some reason.

Give me his address and I'll go toilet paper his house tonight.

Awkward. Delicious trifle & petits au pain last night, by the way...

Lisa Marie Trent said...

MAN I hope he reads this somehow..

Honestly, I'm surprised you didn't go up to him and say something.

Did you forget to mention that he was there with his wife and kids?

Because that would really make for an awkward conversation.

First of all, let me just say - I miss you!! Secondly, I need to know who this "Ben" character is/was in my ward! I will personally go hunt him down for you - the audacity of it all. Standing you up?!?!? It wasn't Ben Geslison was it?

I don't think he was in your ward. There was also a farewell that day. So I think he was there for that. I have no idea what his last name was.

Jergs Family said...

Hmmm. Well alrighty then. Are you recovering from the trip yet?

Laura Lee said...

You are quick with the comments!

I miss the trip! I miss you and Sara and everyone there! I'm working on my post right now. I was just thinking this morning that I want to walk down the hall and knock on your door and see what you're up to today.
