A Short Story of True Love from a Distance

Once there was a girl named Jenna. She went to college and was in a statistics class. Everyone in that class was old and dirty. Literally. There were mostly men in that class. Most around the age of 25 and most looked like they slept in their clothes. There were two other females in the class besides Jenna. Both married with kids and one with grandkids. (And why one would take that class at that age is beyond me, but that is beside the point.) So one day, Jenna went to class and saw in the far right corner in the back of the room, a man. This man did his hair, had discovered hygiene, and was nicely dressed. Well, considering the standard around him, he was a Greek god. So of course, the glow he gave off caught Jenna's eye. She looked at him with a critical eye trying to determine if he was really cute or if he was just the best this class could produce. She considered him all class, all day, and well into the night. The next day, Jenna went to class. There she sought out the man who had left her puzzled the day before. But he was not to be found. Jenna was slightly put out, but decided her studies were much more important than trying to figure out if someone was hot or not. Just as she was getting focused, the door opened and in walked the greek god. He had on glasses. Her knees went weak (good thing she wasn't standing). Just when she had made up her mind, this man came in wearing glasses. Now, the world knows that Jenna is a sucker for men in glasses, so for him to come into class wearing glasses was quite rude and inconsiderate. This man who she had ever so recently put out of her mind forever was now right in the front of her mind. Loud and clear, thats for sure. All she could think about was this perfect man and his perfect glasses. He was officially cute, yea even to the point of hot. Now all Jenna had to do was make this man notice her, fall in love with her, get him to ask her to marry him, and then marry him. Thats all. No big deal, many women have done it before. Right? Good. Now, women, bring me your words of wisdom. And if I get good advice....I may even post a picture of Apollo before too long (that is if I can be a good enough stalker to get one of him without his knowledge).

P.S. He is not only hot. He is in a upper-level math class which also makes him smart. See? I am not as shallow as you would like to believe.

Wow...this was laugh out loud funny. And the best part: Itunes was playing "All By Myself" by Celine Dion while I read it--what a perfect soundtrack for this post!
