Some married gal is trying to get her single friend to put the moves on Danny Gokey

June 11, 2009

Sometimes Google Alerts really delivers the goods.

A blogger / married mom / seminary grad student is pimping out her single friend. Said friend attended a church service with Danny Gokey (in Nashville). Blogger / married mom / seminary grad student thinks the single friend should have put the moves on him.

Yes. You read that correctly. And I know you want to know how it all went down, right??

Me: So Meridith, tell me where you were on Sunday morning.

Mer: I’m not funny at this. And then you’re gonna write this…no, that’s not funny…you’re gonna make up stuff…no, stop.

Me: Meridith, just tell me where you were on Sunday.

Mer: I was at church.

Me: Meridith, what church was that? Was it “Bedside Assembly?” The church you’ve been going to the past several weeks? The church with Bro. Sheets and Sister Pillow?

Mer: No, this was actually church church.

Me: Okay, Mer. What happened on Sunday at church that made you call me in a panic from the church parking lot?

Mer: Well, I was actually going to text you while everyone was giving offering but I thought that might be inappropriate so I waited to call you.

Me: And what did you call me about?

Mer: I wanted to tell you who was in church…who was only two rows in front of me.

Me: And who was that?

Mer: Danny Gokey.

* For those of you having trouble following us, Meridith is sitting in church with Danny Gokey. He is single. She is single. He sings. She voted for him.

Me: Meridith, did you enjoy your conversation with Danny?

Mer: I enjoyed the view.

Me: That is not what I asked.

Mer: I didn’t talk to him. I was respecting his anonymity.

Me: Let me ask you this…did he get up and speak at church?

Mer: Yes.

Me: About his stint on American Idol?

Mer: Yes.

Me: That’s not anonymity.

Mer: Melissa, he just started a foundation in the name of his deceased wife. I have a feeling he’s not over it.

Me: What exactly is your point?

Mer: I don’t’ know how to answer that question. That was my answer. I can’t be the silly girl that runs up to him and acts interested. Wait, don’t type that…stop it. STOP!!!

Me: Meridith, how do you expect me to marry you off if you won’t play by my rules?

Mer: I never asked you to marry me off. You’re not my father.

Me: Don’t get too serious, too heavy.

Mer: I told you I’m lame on paper.

Me: Meridith, you’re not lame on paper. You’re Andy Richter to my Conan O’Brian.

Mer: Okay, anyway…I didn’t talk to him because I didn’t want to be some pathetic groupie girl. I didn’t want to come across as needy. Desperate. One-without-a-life.

Me: But I had the perfect opening line.

Mer: I was not going to say that!!!

Me: All you had to do was walk up and say, “Adam – I loved you on American Idol. I voted for you the night you wore the snakeskin pants.”

Mer: (Laughs) I would have ended up saying something lame like, “I was so touched by your ministry.”

Even though that last statement sent a piss shiver through my entire body, I gotta give this Meridith girl a bit of credit for showing a bit of restraint and not trying to actively jump America’s Most Polarizing Dead Wife Guy.

    (a) This is actually hysterical. Probably better her than one of the cougars that lives out here.
    (b) I thought your name was Melinda.

    I felt the same way when I met Danny at the Hilton function a few weeks ago. I wanted to jump all over him…but how could I? He’s still grieving and I respect him (and myself) too much.

    If his circumstances were different, tho… He’s such a hottie and sa-weet as they come!

    Can you even imagine what a first date with Gokey would be like? I’m picturing Larry King Live….I’d wanna shoot myself in the head after about five minutes. If he made a heart hand at me, I’d shoot him first.
