[A Grand Prix GTO for looking]. This Saturday our church is going fishing with some members of the community. The youth group is going, which I help with. I’m going as a chaperone for either a teen who’s dads are too busy to come, or a teen whose dad isn’t in the picture at all; not sure who I’ll be paired up with yet. Nervous and excited at the same time. But it’s going to be fun.

Also of note, I got a unexpected compliment. One of the other youth workers (out of two others) told me that I’m pretty down to earth and friendly, and not overly preachy. Which was really nice to hear, since I like being the friendly guy and I can get along with just about anyone.

Actually, I can think of only one guy I didn’t get along with, because for some reason he didn’t want to get along with anyone. Also, bad mouthing someone 5' away is a horrible game plan. Foresight was not his specialty.

Anyways, I’m excited for this weekend. I have a gut feeling I’ll be baiting the hook more than actually fishing, but that’s ok. My goal is to establish a friendship with the teens anyways.
