theory of revolution

As I stood in line with some 37 teens waiting to get into the Winterfest Youth Conference in Gatlinburg, 8 of them formed a small circle around me and started turning in a clockwise direction for no apparent reason . . . other than to prove my theory that everything actually DOES revolve around me. :)

During another “standing in line” episode, one of our senior guys dissed me. TWICE. And all before breakfast. I’m not going to mention his name, but only because Bradley doesn't deserve the attention. Anyway, the second time he slammed me by stating that it was way too early in the day for me to be beautiful. One of our girls jumped to my defense, “Saying Stephanie isn’t beautiful is like saying the sun doesn’t shine!” I foolishly felt compelled to point out that it was a very overcast morning, and the sun actually wasn’t shining. “Yes it is!” she proclaimed,
“you just can’t see it!”

Yeah. Like me and the beauty thing. It’s there, you just can’t see it.

This is why I love teenagers. They are so funny.
