"I'll be right back," I told her. "I gotta go talk to some people really quick." I walked up to two smiling young men who looked confused at my approach, shook their hands and told them that I thought it was great they were out spreading the word of God. They genuinely seemed glad for my words, but the next line out of my mouth left theirs falling towards the floor.  "I think you should get my number. I would really like for you to come and teach me why Mormons are so happy." The combination of anticipation and confusion that they felt was so palpable I thought they would be frozen there until I spoke.
