Recently while at dinner with some friends from my Singles Ward they informed us that our Stake is starting up a new initiative to help combat "excessive singleness" that is going on in all of the wards. I was very intrigued by this wondering how they could possibly make the guys be
The answer they came up with...(drum roll please)...
FAT CLUB for the girls
Of course that is not what they are really calling it, but basically that is what it is. Apparently a group of middle aged, married men got together one night and thought to themselves "Gee...I think the reason why all of these girls are still single is because they need to take better care of themselves!" What my friends were told is that girls have greasy hair, wear their sweats to everything and don't take care of themselves...hence the new Stake initiative. Apparently there will be classes taught to us each month on how to keep up our physical appearance, exercise classes, classes on how to dress,
along with classes to help us spiritually and mentally.
I just have one question for ya!
WHO IS GOING TO TEACH THESE CLASSES?
No, but seriously?! I can see how some girls were never taught this and how some girls would love to take classes like these. But honestly? Are we going to have the middle aged, frumpy wives of those who came up with this initiative teach us how to dress? That will for sure get me a date!
Also, why don't the guys have a new "initiative" going on? Classes on how to not be creepy, classes on why you can wait until AFTER church to drink your Protein Shake, classes on how to actually talk to a female...you know the really important stuff!
(guys...before your ego is hurt, I am only speaking from experience in my current singles ward! Most of you aren't creepy...most of you! ha)
So thanks, but no thanks on the Fat Club initiative! I think my greasy hair, sweat rockin' friends are pretty awesome!
