Why I can't pay attention in Sunday School.

I get distracted pretty easily.

There was a bald guy sitting a couple rows in front of me in Sunday School yesterday. I was trying to pay attention but, uh, there was a bald guy sitting in front of me.

So my train of thought ran thus: "His head is really shiny. I wonder if he puts something on it to make it shine. Like oil? Do people oil their heads? Maybe it's just naturally shiny. I wonder if he washes it. He must wash it. I mean, gross if he doesn't, right? What does he use? Probably not shampoo cause there's no hair. Just soap? Does he use the same stuff that he washes his face with? I would use body wash to wash it. I mean, it is part of the body. I wonder if he uses a loofah. Do guys even use loofahs? I think I would use a loofah if I had a bald head. It's actually pretty funny to think about washing your head, isn't it? That'd be weird if I were bald. I hope I never get cancer."

Yes, I spent several minutes in church thinking about some guy's head. Which is why I should probably always sit on the front row. Unless the teacher has a moustache. Or some kinda mole.

I think I was sitting next to him...I guess you were able to concentrate better after he left class early and that's why it wasn't more than a few minutes?

It's funny to me that this random stream of thoughts sometimes escapes outside your head (via your mouth) during Sunday School, and Relief Society, and Sacrament Meeting, and Firesides, and Institute...good thing you weren't sitting by me since I got called on a few times to answer questions...

A few weeks ago you posted the "blog counter" and wanted to know who all of these people are that read your blog. Well - I am one of them. My name is Melissa and I am in Tampa! I was reading a blog one day and looked at "next blog" at the top of the screen and found yours. I must say - you are absolutely hilarious and I to read the entire thing - don't worry - not psycho. Mom of two little ones and wife to a CRAZY redneck! I do not know you, but like to read your random thoughts - they provide that needed laugh at stressful moments in my day. Thanks for the laughs and keep em' coming!

Welcome, Melissa! It's always nice to hear that other people find my life as amusing as I do.

And Liz: Yes, it was the guy sitting next to you but I was trying to make it a little vague so he wouldn't feel weird that I couldn't concentrate because of his giant bald head. Thanks for humiliating the freak-headed guy.

Can I just ask who's bald head is in the picture? T

No clue. I google-imaged "big bald head" and that was the first one that popped up.

Ha ha ha! I wish you'd blog about your thoughts in sacrament meeting . . . from your facial expressions I know whatever was going on in your head was comedy gold. I’m seriously looking forward to your letter from the editor. You never fail to make me laugh.

It almost looks like it could be Patrick Stewart's head. His head is perfectly-shaped for baldness.
