So I met a guy on Twitter. I was really digging him, even though I suspected he was a little younger. Ok, maybe he was a lot younger. But so what?
How young is too young anyway?
It wasn’t like demi and @aplusk for God’s sake. Well, ok, it kind of was, but seriously, what difference does it make? He was cute, over 18, and, it wasn’t planned. So that should count for something.
Stop being judgmental. K?
We just started @replying each other one day, and I thought he was really funny in a nerdy sort of way – I’m a sucker for these geeky Twitter types, ya know?
Anyway, things were progressing along. (Well, I confess, I was stalking him a little, but it wasn’t like I put his Twitter feed in my Google Reader or anything. At least…initially.)
Eventually, we started DMing and it was getting a little out of control. To be honest, nothing really happened, but there was a lot of twinnuendo if you know what I mean.
This went on for awhile and then one day we were DMing and it was getting pretty interesting, And, to be truthful, maybe a little hot. I was really into it, but then all of the sudden I remembered that I had to go to the dentist. #Argh.
So I left the house and started texting my DMs directly to Twitter from my phone.
Anyway, I was in the waiting room at the dentist and this Beatles song came on — I think it was “She’s Got a Ticket to Ride” or actually, maybe it was “Sgt. Pepper” Anyway, I can’t remember. It was something from the Beatles.
So, I happen to mention to this guy this song just came on and he says “i don’t know it” and I wrote back, “how can that be? it’s the beatles!” and he says, “whatev. not really into beatles. bunch of old guys.”
And so, I write again, “not into the beatles? how can that be?” I guess I was thinking that if I repeated myself I might get a better answer the second time.
And he says, “i think my dad liked the beatles.”
Ok, so I knew this was a bad idea, but it just popped into my head and before I knew it I was typing back, “oh really? just out of curiosity how old is your dad?”
So he tells me, and it turns out that I’m nearly his dad’s age. So i’m thinking oh crap, this really sucks. But then a lightbulb went off and I asked him, “are your parents still married?” and he wrote back, “no, they’re divorced.”
At the same time, in some kind of a crazy coincidence my girlfriend was DMing me. So I recapped the story for her. Then, since I’m always trying to be funny and all, I wrote to her, “well, if things don’t work out between me and him, i could always date his dad. lol. ha ha.”
And, just as I pressed the send button, I realized that I forgot to put the damn “D” in front of her twitter name.
