I knew it was going to be another insanely spiritual class when the first question asked was, "do you think Jesus winked at people".
Now honestly, I have spent years contemplating everything from the significance of the minute void that exists between subatomic particles to the tampon. But I have never, ever in my 30+ years of over thinking wondered if Jesus was a winker. But it didn't take long for me to decide that he probably was, which is why I responded with a wink, a finger gun click, and a "who do you think invented it?"
Class disintegrated from there. All of a sudden everyone was giving examples of when Jesus would be most likely to wink. The most popular one was the post-death-final-judgement scenario in which Jesus looks at you, winks, and says with a smile, "you're coming with me buddy".
My favorite example (which I did not share) was when Jesus turned the water to wine then winks at his apostles and says, "see what I did there".
Admit it, that was probably one of the most epic moments in religious history, made even better by a simple wink.
It took a good 10 minutes to get everyone to stop winking and laughing.
Then it only to 10 more minutes for someone to read a scripture that included the word "breast" and the class fell apart again. Although I confess, the one to start the giggles that time was me. I even surprised myself when I erupted in laughter. I blame the "dramatic scripture voice" rule and my inability to control my inner 14-year-old boy...what can I say, it happens.
Well, the fact that Nathan asked if any "estrogen bombs" were dropped at girls camp over the week didn't help. I was pretty much primed for inappropriateness from the start.
And thus went another week of me, spiritually preparing the youth for the carnal and cruel world.
