hey...at least he didn't say i had a "sunken chest." man...that bit never gets old
i always say "truth is stranger than fiction." sure, someone else said it first. but that was a really long time ago, and they're probably dead by now. so, i claim it as my own.
shortly after the last 8 minute dating thing, i received an email from an online friend who passed along one of those "no way" kind of things that remind me that the world is a very very very small place.
i thought i'd share it with you to get you kids all excited about tonight's pending disaster.
screen names have been changed to protect the cool.
SuperCool: is the girl julia you mentioned who went on the dating thing tequilamockingbird?
WayCool: whoa, yes
SuperCool: you're not going to believe this, but one of the guys that i met on my dating thing had just met her
SuperCool: on her dating thing
SuperCool: i had read her post
WayCool: what did he say?
SuperCool: i think he was the pirates of the carribean guy
SuperCool: definitely not the cool guy
WayCool: that's really funny
SuperCool: yeah well i had just asked him if he had ever done the speed dating thing before
SuperCool: and he said that he did just a few days before ours
SuperCool: and i asked him how it compared
SuperCool: he said 8 minutes was too much
SuperCool: yeah i don't remember any of them, really
WayCool: so what makes you think you met the pirate guy?
SuperCool: oh we talked about the people that he met, and i asked him if he met someone with an unusual shirt, and he said he met someone who was wearing a pirate shirt
oh, yeah...i'm so ready for this thing tonight.
