Last week I caught one of my office nerds trying to imitate Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” dance. It was possibly the best moment of my entire life.
It sparked this conversation between two of my other nerds:
Me: “If you had to choose between being Beyonce or Jesus, who would you rather be?”
Nerd 1: “Hmm… that’s a tough question. They both have pretty good hair, but chicks are really into Jesus.”
Me: “Um, religious chicks are into Jesus. Those are the girls you’ll never score with anyway.”
Nerd 2: “I think I’d go with Beyonce, but I need to check with my wife to see if she’ll still love me. That’s the only thing stopping me right now.”
Nerd 1: “I’m still stuck on the girl part. I really don’t want to be a girl, but it would be so hard to be Jesus and probably not a lot of fun.”
Me: “Dude, I don’t think the atonement was supposed to be fun.”
The conversation went on for probably another 20 minutes. I love that they didn’t, for a second, doubt my question and just played along.
I have the best nerds ever.
