I remember I was at a party a few months ago. Just as I was leaving an acquaintance came in the door. The crowd was loud, but then there was a lull just as she said in kind of a sultry voice "baby you can't be leaving I just got here." I was a bit caught off guard and didn't respond immediately. Normally such a statement wouldn't be a big deal, but this wasn't a normal party. Rather it was filled with christian singles... thus the reason I was leaving early.
So there was this long awkward pause where the whole room was looking at us. Then I just said in a very loud and jovial voice: "I love awkwardness!" And promptly went out the door.
