Words cannot adequately express how much I learned about life from watching this YouTube video.

Emory & Lilyana Didn't Notice Any Difference

I guess “Out of Order” actually means “You don’t have to feel guilty for not paying for the ride” in this case.

I don’t think I can jump on board with this.

Just watched this video and laughed a lot. I thought I’d share it here.

Seems like God’s timing is perfect.

Awkward Handshakes

Today I had a moment with Frank, our Student Minister at BridgeWay, that I believe there isn’t a word for, but there should be: an awkward handshake. I could also call it an accidental handshake, but it felt more awkward than accidental.

Here’s what happened. We were rating Will, our Worship Minister, on how much of a metrosexual worship leader he is. When we were done I stood up and started to point at Frank to get Will’s final score and that’s how it got started. He thought I was reaching my hand out to offer a handshake (like we lived in the 1930s or something where I guess people shook hands every time they entered or exited a room), so he reached out and shook my hand.

I don’t know why it felt so awkward, but it did. To try to ease things up, Frank reached over to shake Will’s hand, but I didn’t follow suit. I just felt awkward then left the room.

There are other times that the awkward handshake shows up, especially in church:

  • Forced handshake during greeting time in worship. I’m considering going exclusively with hugs because I think that would be less awkward, right?
  • Missed grip. This happens to me when I’m keeping eye contact with the other person and end up not getting a full hand, just fingers. Not good. I always reboot and do it right.
  • Wet noodle. I don’t know what you call it, but that’s what I feel like I’m grabbing when the other person doesn’t do any grip at all in the handshake. It’s not just awkward it’s also a little oogy.
  • Fist bump. I’m not sure why this has become so popular, but it seems like some people think it’s a better alternative than the handshake. It’s not.
  • No free hands, so let’s pinky swear. When I’m holding my daughter and carrying my iPad (which has my Bible in it) I can’t even offer the lefty shake, so sometimes the other person feel obligated to do something, so we end up with some hybrid between a handshake and pinky swear. It makes me feel like somehow I’ve done some weird warp into middle school.

Those are just a few that I can think of. Do you have any moments in your world that the awkward handshake makes an appearance? Share in the comments.

I’m throwing out everything I learned in Bible College & Seminary and I’m going to start preaching like this dude.

Kind of reminds me an SNL skit.

Apparently texting and driving has gotten so bad that you have to pay attention even while shopping in the safe confines of Walmart. The image below is the facebook status my brother shared telling his brave story of survival.
