What? Love me for my Christian Science?

During my junior year in high school, I found myself very much attracted to a boy in college. What was even more special, he was attracted to me! I felt particularly flattered by his attentions, for he was someone I really respected: bright, sensitive, and talented. I also enjoyed considering what it was about me that had caught his interest.

When I mentioned this to my grandmother one day, she smiled and said, "He loves your Christian Science." My Christian Science? As a teen-ager who had been raised in Science and not exposed to many alternative points of view, I tended to play down its importance in my life. I relied on it when I needed relief from ailments, but I wanted to feel that my sense of individuality and the way I managed my life were somehow apart from Christian Science.
