I lost my shoes and found out I'm a nerd.
For some reason, I wear old ugly sneakers when I drive to church each Sunday morning. When I get to my office, I see my nice Sunday shoes staring up at me and make the exchange. Unfortunately, this Sunday, my shoes weren't there and so I totally forgot I had ugly sneakers on. 5 minutes into the 1st service I looked down and realized my mistake.
Now, nobody had commented prior to the service, so the following theories emerge:
1) The ugly sneaker & suit combo is acceptable
2) No one looks at my shoes
3) They are too nice to correct me
4) They were joking behind my back
5) They all have poor vision
Anyways, I did have my 2nd string pair of Sunday shoes elsewhere in my office, so I took the next opportunity to change. But my missing shoes became a subject of conversation and eventually turned into a chat about my entire wardrobe which is, apparently, quite geeky. I mentioned how I am thinking of spending some money on new 'cool' clothes and the comment was made that they like 'pastor matt' the way he is (as in, un-cool).
So now I am missing my shoes AND I'm a nerd. It's been a tough day.
