One time, one of my friends was telling me how all awesome people totally think they are awesome, and I was like, dude, I am one of those awesome people you are talking about, and he was like, I am so sorry, that is so crazy, I had no idea, and I was like, dude, it’s totally cool, but maybe next time just don’t be so hard on awesome people.
There was one time when my singles ward had this huge competition to see who was the awesomest person ever, and I was totally freaked out being around all those other awesome people, but the thing is, we were sitting around later and talking and saying, “I was so psyched out by you, because you were so freaking awesome!” and then the other person would say, “You were freaked out? I was f-r-e-a-k-i-n-g out because of how unbelievably awesome you are!” And a ton of us ended up being super tight friends because of that weekend.
But since I have moved out of that ward I’ve been hearing from people that the awesomeness contest is way scaled down now, which is freaking lame, yo, and some people are even saying you don’t even have to be that awesome to win it which, in my opinion, is a major loss for everyone, awesome or not.
It’s totally wierd to me that sometimes people are uptight about admitting that they are awesome, and that other people get all mad at them when they admit to being awesome. It’s just like, people hate you for being awesome, and you can’t even help it.
So, is anyone else out there awesome? (Don’t you hate it when someone recognizes that you are awesome, and you are freaking pumped that they did, but you don’t want to act like you’re pumped, so you’re all like, it’s no big deal, but a sloppy grin kind of sneaks its way around your defenses, showing that you’re pumped that someone knows, even though you’re trying to act like you wish they didn’t? That sucks!) Has anyone ever come close to being awesome, but not made the final cut? Was that totally crappy, or what? If you’re not awesome, what is your opinion of people who are?
