Discipling teenage girls is fun because it means that teenage boys are not far away. Unfortunately though, our boy to girl ratio is about one to ten. So when strategizing on how we could bring in more boys I turned to the Homecoming King of one of the local high schools and asked, “Carson, how can we use your popularity to bring in more dudes?” In which a guy leader interrupted with a tone of disappointment in me for pumping Carson’s ego and said, “What she is trying to say, Carson, is how can you influence guys around you at your high school to partake in our community?”
The shame of irresponsibly asking that question did not last long because Carson’s instant response, in a very concerned tone was, “But all my friends are girls.”
Guys like Carson make things very exciting because consequently, girls are not funny.
For instance, Carson started the #rudenudes hashtag on instagram. So when a teacher turns their head in class or during an innocent walk down the hall, Carson will unbutton his shirt and a friend with an iPhone will not be too far off to capture the moment. It’s turned into a cultural phenomenon down here in Orlando amongst high schoolers. Unfortunately, some have taken the “nude” part extremely literal. I’ve already seen one too many underage butts.
So what I am basically saying is – Carson is that guy we all knew in high school that gets away with anything and everything, all for the sake of humor, and if a girl tried any of this, she’d be a slut. He also happens to love me, a lot. Last week he asked me to marry him. It’s all very adorable, very hilarious.
So to help paint the picture, I thought I’d share some photos I receive from him, of himself of course, with both impeccable and awkward timing.
So when Carson finally made a guest appearance at Family Dinner with all of my friends, I made him tell everyone about his self-generated, slightly inappropriate hashtag. Once the story was told, an instant challenge was given: Carson had to take a rude nude without any of us noticing.
Twenty minutes later, someone checked their instagram and found this:
So thankful for Carson, his heart for the lost at his school, and of course, his humor.
