S.O. told me a most hilarious little story the other day about a conversation he overheard at the gym at good ole BYU-Idaho. I think this story has got to be one of the most classic BYU-Idaho moments. This is a little of how the conversation went…
Big macho kid: "You should lift those a little slower; it will work your stomach a lot more."
(Said with the tone of voice that say's he thinks he is all that and totally knows what he is talking about when in all reality he probably really didn’t. S.O. was convinced that it was just a tactic to start up a conversation, and I agree)
Girl: “Oh yeah. Thanks.”
Big macho kid: “That’s a cool bracelet. Did you make it?”
Girl: “No, it’s from Guatemala.”
(And then the bomb... and the best part of this WHOLE story and what made it totally worth S.O. eves dropping on the conversation)
Girl: “My missionary sent it to me.”
As you can imagine the conversation came to an abrupt end…I wonder why? LOL! I absolutely love this because I think it happens so much at BYU-Idaho and only boys at BYU-Idaho and probably BYU get shot down by the classic “missionary” comments.
