Unsolved Mysteries

Why on earth is it, that when I look like absolute caca guys pay attention to me? I am not being stupid right now. I am not fishing for any "oh you never look like caca" comments. So don't leave any or I will slay you. I am just saying. Honestly. Truly. I was a gross looking girl today. My dirty hair was in a ponytail, I was wearing absolutely no makeup, and I may or may not have been wearing the same shirt / sweater combo I wore to church yesterday. I was Josie Grossie to the fullest. And today. TODAY of all days, this kid in my religion class decides to strike up a conversation with me.

I have had a minor I-don't-know-you-but-I-like-to-look-at-you crush on him all semester. Why today? WHY?

And he walked me out of class. And held the door for me. And all sorts of gentlemanly things like that. Is it 0pposite day!? Did the world start turning the wrong direction while I was catnapping between work and school? Was there possibly some kind of solar flare? Did Satan open a popsicle stand? Why did he pick the worst day in the history of me ever being cute to talk to me?

There are some things in this world I will just never understand.


  1. Yeah we notice that too over at the Grow household. We have several theories. 1. PMS, it must be the pheromones. 2. No Makeup, they want to show everyone that they aren't "superficial". 3. A zit, they feel comfortable around you, you aren't intimidating. Anyway the list goes on and on, Candice has some really great theories about it. Funny post, it made me laugh!

  2. I recognized Josie Grossie after you mentioned her name. I was looking at the picture thinking "that's not Kristin." Obviously I am not the sharpest tool in the shed. Anyway, I don't get why it's a problem that you got attention on your worst makeup/hair/clothes day of the year. Doesn't that mean you can do less and you'll get dated more? That sounds awesome to me.

  3. Oh my gosh I totally know what you mean. Its like when you wake up completely late but decide you are going to be the responsible student and just run to class looking totally not put together...OF COURSE that is always when you randomly run into your old boyfriend or your newest crush. I have always wondered why it has to happen like that???!

  4. I know precisely what you are talking about. I agree with audra's theories. However, I still wish that the phenomenon didn't exist. Why, universe, why? Why did you let that cute guy in seminary talk to me on the day I had chocolate-bar crumbs all over my shirt?

  5. Funny you should say that. Sometimes guys have the worst timing. maybe I'll tell you my story sometime. It's a good one.

    we love you! And i love how Alex is so funny. "i'm not the sharpest tool in the shed" hahaha classic booth comment!
